Immigration Marches

The complacency of the our national denial is being shattered by the widespread marches all around the country in opposition to the Immigration bill now heading toward the US Senate. The proposed law is nothing less than the scapegoating of immigrants by people who are so deeply frustrated by the dangerous policies of our government in the world. Immigrants and those who help them become a very easy target. Hence this vicious bill. One of the most astounding sights in these marches is the large turnout of high school and college students who are up in arms about this injustice so close to their own homes. We must truly persist in whatever voice we can raise to prevent the US Senate acting in such a un-American way.
