This past weekend thousands of people in cities across the country marched for immigration reform. The actions were part of a "National Day of Immigrant Dignity and Respect" and organizers estimated that 50,000 people turned out nationwide. In total, rallies took place at more than 150 sites in 40 cities in an effort to pressure Congress to act on an immigration reform bill before the end of the year. Here’s a look at the action that took place in three cities.
