Immigration Protests

Rallies in Phoenix are drawing people from out of state who both support and oppose the state's new law targeting illegal immigration.

Opponents of the law are busing in protesters from around the country for a march Saturday morning on the state Capitol. Organizers say the demonstration could bring in as many as 50,000 people.

The Phoenix Police Department will have extra officers on duty along the route of the 5-mile march planned by the law's protesters.

Supporters plan a rally of their own that could draw thousands to a Tempe baseball stadium Saturday afternoon. They're encouraging like-minded Americans to "buycott" Arizona by planning vacations in the state.
