Pro-immigration protesters rally at Pomona
POMONA, Calif. (KABC) -- Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano was greeted by protestors Sunday as she delivered the commencement address at Pomona College.
Protestors held signs and chanted "Si se puede," meaning, "Yes we can," voicing their opposition to federal immigration programs.
"We are saying to the administration, Napolitano and Obama, that it's time to keep the promises that they made, which was to legalize the 12 million immigrants in this country, support the dream act and ensure family unity," said protester Jose Calderon.
Protestors also oppose Arizona's new immigration law.
