Upwards of 2000 people rallied and marched over New York City's landmark Brooklyn Bridge on October 5 demanding "real" immigration reform. The protest was one of hundreds around the country on Saturday, part of a National Day of Immigrant Dignity and Respect. The rally and march was supported by a broad coalition of city unions, Immigrant's rights and social service organizations but the turnout was a far cry from the tens of thousands of people who turned out to protest the wave of anti-immigrant laws and mass deportations six years ago.
