Boise march, rally today to focus on immigration reform

Here's a news item from the Associated Press: BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Labor and immigration activists are expected to rally and march in Boise in support for an overhaul of the nation's immigration system. The demonstration Wednesday is part of the May Day rallies planned in cities across the country, where demonstrators are demanding changes in the federal government's immigration laws. Activists are expected to meet at Julia Davis Park in downtown Boise before marching a half-mile to the state Capitol. More than 200 people have indicated they plan to attend the rally on a Facebook event created by the Coalition for Immigrant Rights of Idaho, a group pressing for changes in the law. Participants will begin gathering in Julia Davis Park at 4 p.m., where music and speakers are planned, before a "Family Unity March" to the state Capitol at 6.
