Dozens rallied against Arizona's immigration law in Fresno
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Dozens rallied in Downtown Fresno to oppose Arizona's controversial immigration law.
The marchers circled Fresno's City Hall Friday evening. They want the Obama administration to move forward on immigration reform. These activists also want the city of Fresno to boycott Arizona because of its new law that requires police officers to determine the immigration status of any person they believe is in the country illegally.
The city of Fresno has not taken any official stand on Arizona's immigration law. But Mayor Ashley Swearengin issued a statement last month saying Fresno Police will continue to focus on fighting crime and not investigating people's legal immigration status.
