DREAM Act march: a call for U.S. Senate passage

Posted By on Fri, Dec 10, 2010 at 12:15 PM

After gathering at Milam Park (Plaza de Zacate) for more than an hour on Thursday afternoon, DREAM Act supporters took to the streets to demonstrate their support for Senate passage of legislation to provide young people a shot at eventual U.S. citizenship. Bicyclists blocked off the streets providing "security" for the marchers, a role traditionally down by local police. The group of roughly 200 had nearly crossed downtown before police showed up to temporarily close Alamo Street for the marchers, who then converged on the Alamo to hear emotional testimony from local students and community leaders.
