At least 50 South Texas activists, most of them from San Antonio, are in Phoenix today for the “National Day of Action against SB 1070,” a protest drawing participants from across the United States opposed to Arizona's new immigration law.
Representing a coalition of social justice organizations in San Antonio, Austin and the Rio Grande Valley, the caravan was organized by the San Antonio-based Southwest Workers Union, which stopped in El Paso on Friday to pick up additional protesters.
