DREAM Act march: Rep Villarreal on immigrant scapegoating



Before DREAM Act supporters took to the streets of downtown San Antonio last night to march on the Alamo, state Representative Mike Villarreal addressed the roughly 200 in attendance. He spoke of the increasing "scapegoating" of immigrants across the country, and said that, despite the conservative sweep across the nation, the marchers' spirit, if it could be bottled and taken to Austin, would keep the state in good shape.
