Hundreds march from Austin City Hall toward Texas Capitol in support of immigrants

As many as 240 protesters are marching from Austin City Hall toward the Texas Capitol to show their solidarity with the area’s immigrant community.

Spectators on Thursday lined Congress Avenue in downtown, cheering the passing throngs.

The only trouble at the peaceful demonstration so far happened when Austin police detained a man after some in the crowd of marchers heard him say “there was going to be a shooting.”
