Lashing back II

More on backlash from today’s Chi Trib:

Marches that turned out hundreds of thousands of people in support of immigrant rights also appear to have raised interest in the Illinois Minuteman Project, which supports a clampdown on illegal immigration.

The group, which began in Arlington Heights in October, had about 125 members until the first pro-immigrant rally was held in Chicago's Federal Plaza in March, said Evert Evertsen, the group's membership coordinator.

That number has grown to 360, he said, in the wake of that event and another massive march on Monday to Grant Park.
