Protests as a Form of Dissent

Long have protests been a major aspect of American dissent. One need not look long to find examples of American citizens protesting against wars, for basic civil liberties, and against malicious legislation. It has become a part of our culture and image as Americans, our right to peaceful protest is well ingrained into our psyches. So, it comes as no surprise that protest has become a major part of the movement for immigration reform.

Protest is a means of offering a voice to the common citizen, and it brings attention to important issues. Below are some photos showcasing various immigration reform protests. The plight of the undocumented citizen must be heard.
