ANSWERing Back

The ANSWER coalition for immigrant rights is holding a press conference in Boston today, announcing plans for a protest this Saturday at the National Governors Association annual meeting, which Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is expected to attend. The protest, at noon Saturday in Copley Square, is intended to show opposition to the Arizona law, signed by Brewer, that calls on police to check the status of suspected illegal aliens.

And down in DC, the Center for Community Change announced today the launch of a major media campaign, intending to show the "human faces" of the American immigrants.

This comes, of course, just as the Department of Justice brings a legal challenge to that Arizona law, and as Barack Obama urges Congress to move forward with comprehensive immigration-reform legislation.
