"White Ribbon" Immigration Protest Planned At All-Star Game

((HT: KPNX-TV Phoenix))

Critics of Arizona's SB 1070 immigration law in Arizona are planning a protest outside Chase Field for tonight's All-Star Game.

The group Somos America plans to have up to 75 members stationed outside the stadium to pass out white ribbons to fans who may support their aims.

Founding President Roberto Reveles says that they want to express their opposition to the law.

SB 1070 requires all immigrants to obtain or carry immigration registration papers and requires police, while enforcing other laws, to question people's immigration status if there is a reasonable suspicion they're in the country illegally.

The law is being challenged in federal court.


Here's the sit-down with local attorney Daniel Ortega...
