Immigrant Protest

From the Orlando Sentinel:

MIAMI -- Busloads of immigrants from Latin America and the Caribbean rallied Saturday against proposed legislation that would require U.S. employers to provide information to verify the legal status of their workers and would build a fence along parts of the Mexican border.

About 350 people from Cuba, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico and other countries heard speeches in Spanish and English, then marched to Miami's Freedom Tower to protest a proposed federal law that immigrant groups say would criminalize the nation's 11 million undocumented workers.
