Second City No More, Not That You'd Know

Interesting that Chicago appears to have had the largest march in the country today, at about 150,000, which I think AP reported, but you wouldn't really know that from most of the coverage.

Los Angeles: 25,000. Everybody else: way smaller. Atlanta: zero, after 50,000 last year.

The national media are all saying the same thing: There have been more raids; people are running scared.

Why is Chicago different? We had a raid last week, and there were people today with signs saying, "I am not a criminal." There was also a guy in a foodservice outfit with a sign:

No More 'Illegals"
No More Fast Food
Think Again!

I have theories about why Chicago is different, but I'd like to hear other people's.
