Farmworkers march to remember Cesar Chavez's legacy

Thousands of marchers gathered around the United States to stand in solidarity with farmworkers and their families.

Fear and frustration were on the minds of many at a march on Sunday. Judith Adame works in the grape farms to support her family and has been in the United States for 10 years.

"It has been very hard, because you go out with fear thinking you are not going to come back home, especially because I have a young boy," Adame said.

Marchers in Delano took to the streets in honor of Cesar Chavez's legacy and to voice their concerns with President Donald Trump's immigration plans.

Trump won big in rural and agricultural counties during the election, which is why organizers picked Delano and other rural areas to voice their frustration.
