There were rallies and marches all over the country in favor of immigration reform.  There was one in Austin where 12,000 people came to demonstrate and march in support of legalization.  Dolores Parish and St. Ignatius parishes participated with Austin Interfaith.  Fr. John Korcsmar was on the planning committee and was a speaker.  Fr. Joe Tomei and Bro. Thomas Krieter were also at the rally and march.

Fr. John along with the Franciscan Sisters from Dolores and San Francisco Javier and Holy Cross Sister, Sr. Lilia Sr. Lilia, a Holy Cross sister from Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, who is working with Austin Interfaith as an organizer.  As an organizer, it was her job to make him practice his part; she made him change his entire talk.

"We're going to go left, we're going to go right!  We're going to go over them, under them!  We'll go through 'em; we'll go around 'em!  Go!  Go!  Go!"
