A Day Without Immigrants: Thousands March in Protest on Lubbock Streets

Some carried Americans flags, others carried signs but it was the masses that carried a message of protest to federal representatives from Lubbock.

3,000 people marched through the streets of downtown Lubbock Monday morning. They started at St. Joseph's Catholic Church and ended the march at the Lubbock County Courthouse and Lubbock Federal Building. They delivered resolutions to the offices of U.S. Senator John Cornyn and Representative Randy Neugebauer. The resolutions call for comprehensive immigration reform that recognizes the economic contribution immigrants make in Texas and across the nation.

Monday's march coincided with marches across the nation.
