Vodpod videos no longer available.
ABC15 is covering the second Stand with AZ Rally. Rally on patriots! Woohoo..
Up to 3,000 people have gathered from around the country across from the Arizona State Capitol in support of Arizona’s new immigration law.”It’s a grassroots effort that really took off,” Daniel Smeriglio, one of the people behind the march said Friday.
Since Senate Bill 1070 passed in late April, protests and marches have been almost a daily occurance.
…Hundreds of motorcycle riders kicked off the downtown Phoenix rally off around by riding in a procession around the Capitol. Supporters waved American flags and some carried signs that read “What part of illegal don’t they understand?”
Former Republican Congressman Tom Tancredo of Colorado, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and GOP state Sen. Russell Pearce of Mesa are scheduled to speak at the event.
Pearce is the author of the law that goes into effect July 29 unless blocked by a court, as requested under pending legal challenges.

http://www.StandWithArizona.com Here’s a great slide show which shows the heart, the fun, the seriousness of purpose of our rally last Saturday in Tempe. I hope everyone will be able to take part in this movement somehow, either in AZ, locally, or over the net. The feeling of camraderie and patriotism you will receive from adding your voice to this movement will reward you many times over. Thank you everyone who helped us put together such an amazingly special rally.
