“Si Se Puede” means yes we can. That was the message echoing throughout Capitol Hill this morning. Hundreds of Latino immigrants crowded the northwest lawn of the Capitol to gear up for the One Nation rally.
Feeder rally organizer Marcos Vilar said today’s event will hopefully push those who are sitting by the sidelines, especially since midterm elections are near.
He said that the “Senate and the Republicans are blocking everything and we are coming together to show force and show presence.”
Organizers also handed out signs while guest speaker Illinois Congressman Luis Gutierrez hyped up attendees and Reverend Al Sharpton directed a small religious service.
