  5/1: Thousands To March For Immigration Reform In Downtown LA May Day Rallies
  (LA CBS News) Thousands will take to the streets of downtown Los Angeles Wednesday to participate in May Day protests to end immigrant deportations. Rallies that will cause traffic headaches and change bus routes are planned throughout the day, the Los Angeles Police Department said. May Day started as a day for labor rights, but in recent years, it has transformed into a protest for immigration laws. The march is headed by community organizations, faith-based leaders and labor unions that support Congress’ decision to pass so-called “Common Sense Immigration” reform that keeps families together and offers a clear pathway to citizenship for immigrants that are in the United States illegally. “My parents came to this country from Mexico, and it was during the Reagan Administration that they were finally able to get legal documents to live in this country and to work legally,” Allejandra Valle, who has participated in several local May Day marches over the years, said. “We’ve been able to contribute to our society and our country…so we’re hoping that the 11 million immigrants will make their voices heard and say, ‘Look, we deserve a pathway to citizenship too.’” The ANSWER Coalition, which is the largest protest involving about 20 organizations, will march for immigrant and worker rights beginning on Olympic and Broadway boulevards at noon. It will continue for three hours and end at Olvera Street in downtown LA, organizers said. After the march, a program will be held at Main Street and Arcadia. A second protest will start at 4:30 p.m. Motorists are advised to use local rail systems if possible, as offramps from the Hollywood (101) Freeway will likely be closed at Spring Street and Broadway. Street closures are expected to last through 8 p.m., organizers said.

  Ranchers, Murderers and Michelle Obama
  This video revisits the murder of 9 year old Brisenia Flores by minutemen and compares the response of politicians to that of Rancher Robert Krantz. Is it color, ethnicity or political exploitation that makes one life more valuable in the eyes of John McCain, Gov. Brewer or Russell Pearce? This also covers a 2/22/10 ICE memo, Michelle Obama's moment of truth with a second grader whose Mom doesn't have papers and even more ugliness about Russell Pearce's past and present plans as revealed by his emails. I dated these events for historical reference. All info came from public news sources.

  1/30 Baltimore, MD: 7-Eleven video said to show ICE immigrant racial profiling (CASA de Maryland)
  CASA de Maryland released video footage on Jan 29, 2009 shows federal agents unfairly targeted Latinos in January 2007 outside a 7-Eleven in Southeast Baltimore. The video, taken from store cameras, captured U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents rounding up 24 men suspected of being undocumented immigrants. Most have since been deported or left the country voluntarily. In the video, agents can be seen ignoring black store patrons while focusing on Latino men. Advocates say a white man who had hired three Latinos for day labor was allowed to drive his pickup truck away from the 7-Eleven, while the three workers were taken into custody. In addition, the advocates say, the video shows agents detaining a number of Latinos who had been waiting at a bus stop across the street from the 7-Eleven, a common hiring spot for day laborers.
