Notes

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.

Among those marching are Adelfa Callejo, a Dallas lawyer and civil rights activist who is a leader in the Hispanic community, and Hector Flores, who has served as National President of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), Director of Recruitment and Retention for the Dallas Independent School District, and an Equal Opportunity Specialist for the Office of Civil Rights within the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare.

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