The backlash against the aborted immigration round-up game was so strong, that U.T. Austin hosted a pro-immigration rally. According to the Huffington Post, 500 students, including many undocumented immigrants, attended the rally with America Ferrera.
“I was greatly disappointed to learn that a student group on this campus had planned to hold a disturbing and demeaning game based on bigotry and hate,” Ferrera said.
The Chavez actress is the child of Honduran immigrant and the co-chair of Voto Latino’s “I’m Ready for Immigration Reform” campaign. She tweeted at the event: “W/ hundreds of passionate & inspiring @UTAustin students standing up 4 their undocumented peers & demanding immigration reform.”
