FinallyCurrent has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Thumbs up I am one of those that joined later

Jaime is right , many joined after the rally started. I am one of those that joined later. We were atleast 5 people who came in together and I saw many more after us. And we joined AFTER the rally reached capitol. My only peeve was that many people were leaving even before the congressman began talking. People came there for the rally and then the leave as the meeting is going on --made no sense to me.

Anyway, the only reason we were late in joining was because we could not live with the fact that there were people flying in for the rally and we who were in Metro DC were not going. Thank you all for inspiring us to be there. It felt great do something for ourself.

Default Meetings

People were leaving because they had meetings with the law makers, we had scheduled meeting with the law makers all day long(it was a 3 day event).

Hi FinallyCurrent,

A lot of people have meeting with their lawmakers in the afternoon. Myself included. Otherwise, we would have loved to stay back till the end of the rally.

Default Seems like Associated Press did not cover our event

Associated Press (AP) reports are picked up by news organizations from around the world including many US news organizations. Its sad AP did not cover this event

All the people who participated in the rally, good job and thanks

Default Sorry - you are wrong

We have finished counting up the people who registered, and there were over 2000 people that attended.

This, of course, doesn't include our great immigration voice friends Greg Siskind and Sheela Murthy. Who both walked with us side by side.

The post rally speeches were filled by CNN, covered by Washington Post and many other news organizations.

Congressmen even gave speeches

Don't spread disinformation, hater!

You quite obviously weren't there

Default Yes, there were over 2000 present. Rally was VERY successful!

I just came back from the rally to Dallas and yes, there were over 2000 people. It was a very successful event and the positive energy was amazing! We come from many different places and are from different disciplines, but we share a common heart. A heart that beats for America, and we will not let that heart stop beating! The only option is victory now! We are well on our way, together!!!!
