in support to the rejection to the HR4437 and the request for a path to legalization and a fair migratory reform. The march is a straight forward and resonant public demonstration to our senators that we are against the ignominious HR4437 and the Immigrants who live in this great nation deserve the opportunity of legalization and work without been abused or discriminated. The invitation is to march with us from Cadman Plaza by the Brooklyn Bridge, The Immigrant Bridge, towards the USCIS Building Naturalization and Immigration Services in 26 Federal Plaza, chanting and carrying our messages of Justice.

We suggest to bring first the USA flag as representation that we embrace this nation in which we live with our families, we respect their laws and culture. In another hand people can bring their own flags from another countries and those are welcome too, because we can no denied who we are and the respect that we feel for our own countries. Posters and barrels of energy are needed. Bring them all!
