Known as Immigration Reform Mega March, people brought signs and waved American flags in what was a peaceful protest.

The Dallas Police Department estimated between 3,000 and 4,000 people marched through downtown. There were also no reported incidents or arrests.

The last Mega March in 2006 brought together about 500,000 people which was the largest civil rights march in Texas history.

Organizers of the march expected a crowd of about 100,000 people during final preparations last week.

The march started at the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe on Ross Avenue at around 2:00 p.m.

Marchers stopped at Dallas City Hall where various activists, including Martin Luther King III, spoke to the crowd.
