Immigration Laws Protest

There will be protest regarding the proposed Immigration Laws throughout the United States today. I have heard rumors of one in Detroit, but don’t know the details. Can anyone share them?

If you participate or have something to say about the issue, feel free to post it in the comments. Be civil, but feel free to be opinionated.

If you have photos, share them in our open flickr group.


I completely forgot about an email I already had with a link to The National Day of Action for Immigration Justice

The Detroit Protest (Prayer service and action rally) happened last night at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church, 1721 Junction Street. Did anyone go? There will be posts on some of the other Metroblogging cities regarding events in their cities today.

    no takers yet???

    i believe that if someone came into the country illegally, that they should be sent back to the country they came from immediately…

    I guess no one went to the Prayer Service/Rally or has an opinion on immigration laws in Detroit… Sad but I recommend you check out Metblog Chicago, LA, DC, NYC… They have things going on in their cities.

    first, i saw some local news program that interviewed one of the protesters yesterday and the guy was genuinely outraged by the government because, as he said, they want to pass a law to send the illegals back to Mexico. it’s funny to hear it that way…making it illegal to be illegal. haha. so i thought it’d be funny to go to that guys house and move in with him, and maybe take a couple dozen friends along. who’s with me?

    I think if these people are here trying to make a better life for theirselves and their families then they should be left alone.If they are not commiting a crime and are leading productive lifestyles,then allow them the chance to have a better life. Like in the pledge of allegiance it simply states LIBERTY and JUSTICE FOR ALL.I understand that they are illegal. But if anyone knows their history we all are immigrants or are from immigrants.
