Massive Immigration Law Protests Set Tone In LA
The largest-ever demonstration in LA history on Saturday, March 25--estimated at anywhere from 500,000 to over 1,000,000 people--set a tone that drew students in a widespread walkout the day before, and even larger walkouts the following Monday. While LAUSD went on lockdown the next day, walkouts continued locally in Long Beach. The continued demonstrations raise the possibility of a fundamental shift in citizen attitudes, and willingness to take political action. It also appears to signal a significant set-back in the GOP's long-term strategy to try to woo Latino voters.

I'm interested to see what Arnold has to say.
