San Diego immigration law demonstration
As many as 50,000 people took part in a march and demonstration in downtown San Diego, the latest in a series of public responses across the country to pending immigration legislation in Washington.
Most of the marchers were Latino, and many participated as families.
U.S. and Mexican flags were carried side by side, and a large number of the marchers wore white shirts to symbolize their peaceful effort.
The march took more than 75 minutes to pass us.
The march ended in front of the San Diego County Administration Center where the crowd spilled in every direction along approaching streets.
