Organizers are expecting a big turnout for today’s May Day immigration march.

Demonstrators are planning to march through downtown Chicago this afternoon, before attending a rally in federal plaza.

Marches calling for immigration reform are held nationwide every May 1.

But organizers think there will be an even bigger crowd this year, now that immigration is on the agenda again in Congress.

The demonstration is set to begin at 2 p.m. in Union Park, at Ashland Avenue and Lake Street.  From there, demonstrators will head east on Washington Boulevard to Desplaines Street, and then south to Jackson Boulevard.

The event will culminate with a 4 p.m. rally at the Federal Plaza on Jackson and Dearborn Street.
