Local group protest Arizona's immigration law.
Valley residents gathered at a McAllen intersection to protest Arizona's Senate bill 1070 on illegal immigrants. Members of the Southwest Workers Union held up signs to passing vehicles in a Liberation Caravan campaign ending in Phoenix, Arizona. The campaign began in the Valley and will make several stops in other cities in Texas. The Southwest Union Workers say the law in Arizona is racist and will divide families and increase unreported crimes. The Liberation Caravan campaign is funded through donations from businesses and community members who oppose the bill.
