ABSTRACT
The article praises the Un Día Sin Inmigrantes marches and protests in the U.S. The protesters had an iron-clad credential: they were, as the phrase goes, organic to the system, meaning the economy could not survive without them. The marchers' own chants were anything but complaining. Peace and Plenty, they repeated, and Sí se puede. That undimmed aspiration made the marches a patriotic mobilization by a group whose Americanism still shines from fresh minting.
