Days after shutting down a west Phoenix intersection over Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s immigration enforcement policies, some of those same teenagers and others are planning another major protest.

KSAZ-TVreports a march is planned Friday afternoon near the Arizona State University downtown campus.

The television station reports that several hundred students are planning to participate and are led by two national human rights groups.

They claim Arpaio is unfairly targeting Hispanics in his fight against illegal immigration.

At Tuesday’s protest, hundreds of students spoke out against Arpaio. They blocked a street and six people were arrested, but federal immigration authorities decided not to deport them.

  1. Those students broke the law many times over. They should be deported.
    In my opinion, this is totally criminal behavior.
    See how far this type of behavior will get one in Mexico.
    This is a sovereign nation with laws in place for public safety.
