Demonstrators blanketed the streets around Burnett Bayland Park as they flowed together in a united sea of workers, students and immigrants, legal and illegal, merging chants for workers' rights and immigration reform.
"We are the DREAMers, the mighty mighty DREAMers, fighting for justice and an education," chanted demonstrators led by the Immigrant Families and Students in the Struggle (FIEL) organization in Houston. "Up, Up with education, down, down with deportation!"
