Last week, thousands of Americans descended on the National Mall and protested the Illegal Immigration Bill that is currently in the House of Representatives. They came from far distances to have their voices heard. On this day, there was a common cause that was addressed by Democrats and Republicans alike and they would not be denied. Here are some photos from Michael Wright and Carlos Winston of the event that day along with a few videos of the speakers.

Founder of Newsninja2012.com Wayne Dupree kicked off the event with a strong message rallying together for a common message. It didn’t matter what political party you were apart of. It didn’t matter if you were black, white or yellow. Illegal immigration/Amnesty is going to hit everyone that lives in the nation and it’s about time the people came together as America is stronger when we do!
Former Congressman Allen West took to the podium later in the day with a speech that all Americans should be proud of. Lt Col West had been approached by many people about their hesitance of attending and appearing at this rally withe a progressive label hanging over and and instead of letting the rumors and social media go back and forth about whether or not he should be there, he hit it dead on within the first couple of minutes.
The honorable Senator Ted Cruz finished up the day with a strong and powerful personal speech to the crowd. He stood his ground and told the out of town citizens, who joined as a group, it was up to them to stand and make the noise to stop the House from passing the illegal immigration bill. Sen Cruz once again used no notes no teleprompter ………… all he did was speak from the heart. In addition, there were no boos when Cruz hit the stage. He was well received by everyone that attended the rally.
