Immigration protest Downtown

Thousands of protesters marched over the Brooklyn Bridge to Lower Manhattan’s Foley Square Saturday. The marchers, who stretched over a mile, were objecting to a House immigration bill that would make it a crime for a charity or individual to provide assistance to anyone in the country illegally. The Senate is currently debating its own immigration bill.
