The mother of all demonstrations...

A crowd estimated by police at more than 500,000 boisterously marched in Los Angeles on Saturday to protest federal legislation that would crack down on undocumented immigrants, penalize those who help them and build a security wall along the US southern border.

I don't understand the specifics of the legislation that will be discussed in Congress this week. It certainly is not very practical to consider sending home 11 million immigrants who are here illegally. And the idea of building a wall across our southern border would appear to be un-American.


Regular visitors will notice that I have revised the tag line at the top of this page to reflect a broader focus for this blog. I'll continue to post several times each week on post-Katrina reconstruction.

You will notice that I've revised and updated the sidebar. I've dropped the Red Cross link because of the most recent scandal involving the misappropriation of funds in New Orleans. And I've added a Google Ad that will be activated in a few days. Will get some pocket change from Google if people click on this Ad enough times! As usual, your comments are always welcome.
