St. Louis, MO – More than 5,000 people rallied and marched in downtown St. Louis Sunday as one of a number of demonstrations across teh country in support of immigrants' rights.
The overwhelmingly Latino crowd cried out "Si Se Puede!" ("Yes We Can"), the chant made famous by activist Cesar Chavez. The rally was one of dozens aimed at pressuring Congress to clear the way for citizenship for 11 million undocumented workers.
St. Louis, MO – Vice President Dick Cheney will help U.S. Senator Jim Talent raise campaign money tonight (Monday) in Springfield, Mo.
That comes just days after First Lady Laura Bush attended a fundraising luncheon for Talent in St. Louis.
Talent is running for re-election. He'll likely be the GOP nominee and will probably face Democratic state Auditor Claire McCaskill in the fall. Both face much lesser-known opponents in the August primary.
