    Thousands of protesters made their voices heard in the City Wednesday night.

    Helicopter shots above the scene shows a sea of people outside Sen. Dianne Feinstein's office.  They are calling on calling on the senator and other legislators to pass national immigration  reform.

    Their presence caused traffic to be delayed and diverted throughout San Francisco.

    The timing hit during the evening rush hour.

    Helicopter video above the scene showed a sea of people outside Sen. Dianne Feinstein's office.

    A San Francisco police spokesman says the demonstration near the city's Civic Center was peaceful, with no arrests as of 6 p.m.

    San Francisco Supervisor David Campos was among the speakers to the crowd.
         
    "The point of America is that throughout its history, it has  gotten the best from throughout the world," the supervisor said. "Why turn  your back on that talent?"

    The rally comes after a march and rally in Washington, D.C., over  the weekend that drew thousands of people in support of immigration reform.

    As of 5:45 p.m., Post Street was closed at Market Street due to  the demonstrators.
