Protesters descend on ICE field office for SB1070 protest

A few dozen protesters gathered outside the Immigration and Customs Enforcement building in downtown Phoenix Wednesday afternoon to protest Senate Bill 1070. The law went into effect Tuesday, two years after the state legislature passed it and three months after the Supreme Court ruled to uphold parts of the bill. Illegal immigrants were among the speakers at Wednesday’s protest.
