San Antonio Immigrant Youth Movement

Across the country, people marched  in memory of doctor Martin Luther King Jr. and the fight for civil rights. San Antonio is believed to have one of the largest marches in the country and the fight for equality here is focused on the rights of African-Americans, and immigrants as well.

More than 100,000 people, including dozens of organizations, marched down San Antonio’s MLK drive in the predominately African-American east side. San Antonio as a whole is mostly Hispanic -- about 55 percent -- and has a large immigrant population.
