[Female protester with sign next to Cathedral Santuario de Guadalupe in Dallas]

Description:

Next to Cathedral Santuario de Guadalupe (Cathedral Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe) in Dallas, a female protester holds up a bright yellow sign that says, "Queremos la Reforma Migratoria Justa y Necesaria!"

According to the Dallas Police Department, at least 100,000 people marched in the most well-attended civil movement in the history of Dallas. The protesters demanded the legalization of Hispanic undocumented immigrants, estimated to be about twelve million in the United States.

The so-called "mega march" was carried out to demand immigrant amnesty as members of the U.S. Congress debated immigration reform.
