Description: Immigration protesters carrying American flags pass a "Cathedral Guadalupe" sign and the Cathedral Santuario de Guadalupe (Cathedral Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe) of Dallas in the background. 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.
