PROTESTS SWEEP NATION, Immigration News Brief Summary

An estimated two million people took part in coordinated demonstrations in more than 140 US cities on Apr. 10, a National Day of Action for Immigrant Justice demanding legalization and other rights for out-of-status immigrants. Organizers scheduled the protests for a Monday during congressional recess so elected officials would be in their home districts to witness them. Hundreds of thousands more marched on the previous day, Apr. 9. [Atlanta Journal-Constitution 4/11/06; Los Angeles Times 4/11/06]
