May Day Rallies Focus on Gang of Eight Immigration Proposal
Thousands of activists took to the streets of Southern California to commemorate International Workers Day. The main call this year is for comprehensive immigration reform, a version which was recently presented to Congress. In downtown LA, several thousand people marched through the heart of the city calling for an end to the separation of families and a pathway to citizenship for the estimated 11 million undocumented workers residing in the country.
