Immigrant-rights groups say they’re launching what they call a massive effort to register and turn out Latino voters because of a new Arizona law targeting illegal immigrants.
The groups want to turn out 50,000 Latinos who otherwise would not vote in November’s election. They say they’re mobilizing 2,000 volunteers to reach that goal.
The groups include Mi Familia Vota, Democracia USA, Border Action Network and the Arizona Center for Empowerment.
They say they want to help guide Arizona away from divisive policies and politicians.
