Neo-Nazis march on state Capitol

Members of a neo-Nazi group marched and protested Saturday (Nov. 7) afternoon at the state Capitol over illegal immigration.

National Socialist Movement member Steven Boswell called the gathering “an American first rally” and a demand that politicians put Americans first.

About 100 people, some dressed in black and wearing arm patches, marched down Washington Street toward the Capitol near downtown Phoenix.

They were met with shouts from protesters across the street.

Police set up a barrier between two groups as they shouted back and forth for about an hour Saturday afternoon.

Arizona Anti-Defamation League spokesman Bill Strauss said it is common for hate groups to take political issues and twist them to gain support.

No one was arrested and there were no physical fights or injuries reported.
