    As far as I am concerned the more they protest and rally thus making our streets and businesses unuseable they should forget Amnesty or citizenship. They are proving their lack of respect for OUR country and they need to pack up and go back to Mexico! I have met many people from foreign countries to include Mexico who followed the laws and legally immigrated because they want to be respectful and productive, not detrimental! And these "citizens" feel that the legal path is the right way!

    The fact the LA allows this is poor judgement because they are impairing the businesses and the employees that are trying to earn a living!

    This is a captivating stream of photographs. Each photographer and each subject within each photograph deserves the right for their voice to be broadcast on some kind of international megaphone in their honor. I am in awe of the incredible passion and courage in the piercing eyes of the women featured in the photograph in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
