1,000 protest new anti-immigrant
measures by governor of Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS—A largely young, working-class crowd of more than 1,000, mostly Latinos, marched here February 12, chanting “No human being is illegal” and “Immigrant rights are human rights!” Organized by a coalition of some 40 religious, labor, and community organizations, the marchers protested Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty’s new anti-immigrant measures. Pawlenty is setting up an Illegal Immigration Enforcement Team, calling for increased use of police for checking individuals’ immigration status, and trying to impose increased penalties on “false identification offenses.”
