El Paso - The Border Network for Human Rights is taking a firm stand against Arizona's new immigration law.
"We in El Paso feel the need to take a stand now against the potential spread of such harmful and short-sighted legislation before Texas follows in the Arizona footsteps," said the organization in a news release.
"The El Paso community will hold accountable El Paso politicians who are considering trampling constitutional rights and sacrificing the safety, rights and livelihood of border communities."
The Border Network plans to spell out its objections to the new immigration law at a news conference on Saturday.
