US immigrants march for respect

Huge marches have taken place across the US, marking the National Day for Dignity and Respect. Demonstrators supporting immigrant rights gathered at almost 100 different events to march, listen to speeches, sign petitions, and celebrate a multitude of cultures. An immigration reform bill was unveiled last week by House Democrats.
