Description: A male immigration protester holds two signs. One reads: "1st Illegal Alien In US: Pilgrim" and the other reads: "1st Illegal Alien In Texas: Sam Houston / Davey Crockett / Jim Bowie Etc. Etc." According to the Dallas Police Department, at least 100,000 people marched in the most well-attended civil movement in the history of Dallas. The protesters demanded the legalization of Hispanic undocumented immigrants, estimated to be about twelve million in the United States. The so-called "mega march" was carried out to demand immigrant amnesty as members of the U.S. Congress debated immigration reform.
