Why Are You Here?  (¿Porqué Estan Aqui?)

A look at the May Day, 2006 protests in Madison, Wisconsin

On May 1, 2006, hundreds of thousands of immigrants across the United States engaged in "the Great American Boycott" to protest proposed strict anti-immigrant laws proposed by the U.S. Congress.  The law would have made illegal entry into the United States a felony.  In Madison, Wisconsin, five thousand people gathered in front of the state capitol.  Prolefeed Studios was there, and we asked people in the crowd the same question, "Why are you here?"  Here's what they said.
