PHOENIX (WKOW) -- Several rallies opposing Arizona's new immigration law are planned for today across the state.
Phoenix mayor Phil Gordon will hold a news conference with actor Danny Glover.
Gordon along with Rev. Al Sharpton and Hispanic leaders will lead a march to the Arizona State Capitol in a protest against the state's new law targeting illegal immigration.
Organizers plan a gathering at a church near downtown Phoenix Wednesday night and then a three-mile candlelight procession to the Capitol. Participants will then join a vigil at the Capitol in protest of the new law.
The law's provisions include a requirement that state and local law enforcement officers question people about their immigration status if there's reason to suspect they're in the country illegally. It also makes it a state crime to be in the United States illegally.
The Phoenix Suns will wear "Los Suns" on their jerseys in Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals tonight against San Antonio.
The decision to wear the jerseys on the Cinco de Mayo holiday stems from a law passed by the Arizona Legislature and signed by Gov. Jan Brewer that has drawn widespread criticism from Latino organizations and civil rights groups.
