Immigration Rally Planned In Garden City

Organizers of an immigration rally in
Garden City say they want to teach Hispanic and Latino communities
that they have rights.
Kansas United Corp., a Wichita-based nonprofit group, says it
expects about 3,000 people to attend Saturday’s rally.
Eva Barraza, a Kansas United board member, says the rally is in
response to a law passed in Arizona, which requires police to ask
people about their immigration status if there is a suspicion that
they’re illegal immigrants.
Barraza said minority communities in southwest Kansas are
already concerned that state lawmakers might consider implementing
a similar law in the future.
People from Dodge City, Scott City and several other southwest
communities are expected to attend the rally.
