But the mall's closed, right?

World War Two vets had to break through barricades to get access to their memorial. People who have homes or businesses on leased federal land are being told by the National Park Service to get out.

But now comes word that the same Park Service is welcoming an amnesty rally on the National Mall in DC tomorrow.

From the Washington Examiner:
Organizers for the "Camino Americano: March for Immigration Reform" were spotted Monday setting up a stage and equipment on the National Mall for the rally which will take place on Tuesday...

Susana Flores, a spokesperson for the rally, confirmed for the Washington Examiner that the Park Service will allow the event to take place under the group's rights granted by the First Amendment.
Yes, the mall remains "closed" and the Examiner notes barricades saying so continue to dot the landscape.
