Thousands protest at Mega March in Downtown Dallas

 

On Sunday afternoon thousands of people gathered in front of the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe in Downtown Dallas to protest immigration reform. Eleven years ago in 2006 the first Mega March took place, that day 500,000 people marched from the cathedral to Dallas City Hall calling for a similar message to fix immigration laws.

Martin Luther King III, son of civil rights hero Martin Luther King II, was also in attendance along with other activists.

As the crowd made its way to Dallas City Hall to hear from speakers, President Trump supporters greeted them. There were no agitators, both sides let out their opinions, and overall the scene was a great peaceful showing of what a democracy is all about.
