It’s official. Today is “National Council of La Raza Day” in San Diego.

City Council this morning unanimously approved the resolution from Mayor Jerry Sanders and Councilmen Tony Young and Ben Hueso to honor the Latino rights organization.

Council approved the resolution over the strenuous objections of a few anti-immigration protesters, most notably Christian rights activist James Hartline.

National Council of La Raza is holding its annual convention in San Diego from Saturday through next Tuesday. Sanders is scheduled to speak at the convention on Monday.
