Capitol Immigration Rally Remains Peaceful (VIDEO)Tim King Salem-News.com
(SALEM) - Thousands of people attended an immigrant rights rally Sunday at the state capitol in Salem. They came together in solidarity at state capitols throughout the nation, reminding Americans that unless they are Native Americans, that they live in a land settled by immigrants.
Counter protesters failed to materialize, just an occasional statement was heard from passing cars along Court Street. Local TV crews from Portland were accused of being "liberal media" as they endeavored to complete their day's assignments, by the few hecklers by.
Many in attendance say the move against immigrants is a smokescreen to deflect attention from a heavily criticized war, and a presidential administration faced with an all time low approval rating.
