The day started with students walking out again to show their opposition to the Sensenbrenner Bill and ended with the Senate Judiciary Committee approving legislation that would make it possible for the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the US to seek citizenship without first having to return to their home countries. Eric at blogdowntown's worries that the students had no idea what they were protesting will be addressed tomorrow as LAUSD will feature classes discussing the Bill and the issues surrounding it in middle and high schools throughout the county.

Former LA resident Roxanne at Rox Populi asks a simple question, though: Why does most immigration reform focus on the supply-side instead of the demand-side?

A fine question but tonight we'll just marvel at the power of the people. It has been a long time since we could point to a moment of civil uprising that had real results.
