A group of supporters of Arizona’s tough new law cracking down on illegal immigration says it will announce plans for an upcoming rally.
The group calling itself Stand With Arizona plans a press conference on Thursday to explain its motivation.
The group is encouraging supporters of Arizona’s law from around the country to come to the state for a rally at Tempe Diablo Stadium on Saturday evening. They say supporters should spend money in Arizona to counteract the effects of a boycott being promoted by opponents of the measure.
Arizona’s law requires police enforcing another law to investigate people’s immigration status if there’s reason to suspect they’re in the United States illegally.
