Sun Mar 28 2010 Immigrants and Allies March for Justice in San Francisco
Thousands Rally in Front of Senator Feinstein's to Demand Immigration Reform in 2010 On March 24, an estimated 2,000 immigrant rights advocates marched and rallied in downtown San Francisco. Chanting "El pueblo unido jamas será vencido" in both Spanish and English, they made their way to Feinstein's office from an initial rallying point at Justin Herman Plaza.

Eric Quezada, Executive Director of the Dolores Street Community Services said, "Every day that we continue without immigration reform people in our communities are suffering." Other speakers pointed out that immigrants contribute to the US economy and demanded that the government reduce deportations and create clear paths to US citizenship. They called on Senator Feinstein and President Obama to take up immigration reform as their next big legislative push.

Dozens of organizations were represented at the action including El Centro de la Raza, Reform Immigration For America, SIREN, Asian Law Caucus, African Advocacy Network, and many other national and Bay Area groups.
