A Day Without Immigrants in Des Moines Was Anything But
DES MOINES, Iowa - "A Day Without Immigrants" - the idea was for the Latino community to disappear, showing the rest of the nation what it's like without them. But the rally at the Iowa State Capitol made it impossible not to notice these people. "This is more than we were expecting to come, like people, to show up today," said Manuel Galvez, an organizer. "This is part of a national movement to show that we are part of this country, and we want to send a message to the political people that we are part of this country."
