Immigration activists plan reminder for overhaul

Slew of events planned as other debates dominate

MIAMI — Immigrants and their allies will march this weekend on Taylorville, Ill., in time for the annual chili fest. They’ll take a break from harvesting spuds to demonstrate in Boise, Idaho, and they will hold candles until dawn along the banks of Lake Hollingsworth near Orlando, Fla.

In more than 150 cities around the country, they will gather to remind the nation that despite the feuds in Congress over the debt ceiling and health care — despite the government shutdown — they are still here and still demanding immigration changes.
