Protesters Hail 'Day Without Immigrants'

From Philadelphia's Liberty Bell to the streets of downtown Los Angeles, pro-immigrant rallies are taking place in most major cities across America.

In New York and elsewhere, marchers formed human chains.

In Chicago, authorities estimated some 500,000 people marched on the national day of protest for immigration. Some counter-protests may also take place.
