A proud imigrant clutches an american flag while singing at a vigil for imigrants in St. George, Utah

I took this shot at a vigil for immigrants in St. George, Utah. St. George has a large Hispanic community but an even larger Trump supporting community. This vigil was held to show solidarity with the legal and not-yet-legal immigrants in our community. When I saw this woman clutching the flag to her chest as she sang, I thought "I've never seen anything more American than this."
