Hispanics joined forces with African-Americans on the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington during which, among other issues, they again pressured Congress to pass a comprehensive immigration reform.

The speakers, several of them Hispanic, together with the people attending the event, acknowledged the need to find a solution for the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the United States, and did not hesitate to draw parallels between the situation of immigrants today and the plight of blacks in the 1960s.
