US: Massive immigration rally in NY

Thousands of demonstrators have marched through New York to protest against tougher immigration laws.

The protesters, most of them Hispanic, marched across the Brooklyn Bridge to the edge of Chinatown carrying banners saying “We are not criminals”.

The House of Representatives has passed a bill making it a felony to be in the US without correct paperwork and the Senate is debating other measures.

A number of smaller protests were held on Saturday in many US cities.
