There was a huge demonstration at Chicago's Federal Plaza today.
Your intrepid blog reporter was there.
They were protesting some House Bill that aims to crack down on illegal immigration. The Chicago Tribune's website said it was Irish, Polish and Mexican immigrants. Well, there may have been some Irish or Polish in there somewhere, but it was hugely Mexican.
They were peaceful. Kind of quiet.
I saw nothing resembling a riot.
But they did seem sort of worried
As if they might be hurried
Out of the country any minute.
I hope they're allowed to stay in it.
