On December 15, 2005, the House of Representatives passed HR 4437, also known as the Sensenbrenner Bill. This bill sought to criminalize undocumented people, give the government extraordinary powers to detain non-citizens without meaningful review (and more). Many felt this was unconstitutional, including the immigrant community and the Latino/Latine community. They began to mobilize in numbers that had never been seen and on March 25th, 2006, made history, when millions protested HR 4437. It is estimated that 1.5 million marched in Los Angeles alone and protests continued throughout the year.

Cristina and Carmen talk about HR 4437, their participation in student walkouts, May day and La Gran Marcha, as well as share their mom's story and a few more of those who protested.
