The Modesto Bee is reporting on a group of Sikhs who joined others protesting legislation that would fail to recognize the important contributions that working, illegal immigrants are making to the United States -- a topic that has generated significant controversy particularly because of the fear that generous immigration laws may make it easier for potential terrorists to enter into and eventually harm the nation:
A group of Indian students, some wearing traditional Sikh turbans, joined the march, a day after thousands of Sikhs filled the streets of Livingston during an annual celebration.
Tajender Pabla, 17, said word of the walkout spread quickly through cell phone text messages Sunday and early Monday. Other students spread word through the popular Web site MySpace.com.
"I think it's important to back (Latino students) up in what their beliefs are so they can back us up," Pabla said. [Link]
