READY ON DAY ONE: An Ecuadorian immigrant speaks at a Jan. 21 rally outside the Federal Building in Lower Manhattan. Similar immigrant rights demonstrations were held in more than a half-dozen cities on President Barack Obama’s first day in office. The protesters urged Obama to help keep immigrant families intact by issuing an administrative order that would stop all raids and deportations. PHOTO: EDUARDO SANCHEZ
