Las Cruces - Racist, illegal, appalling.
Words New Mexico LULAC used today in Las Cruces to describe the Arizona immigration law.
The League of United Latin American Citizens is one of several civil rights organizations to announce that it is pursuing legal options against the law.
New Mexico LULAC director Paul Martinez says time is on the side of the law's opponents...
"In the next couple of years, the Hispanic community you see now that the immigrant these children that are born from immigrant parents are going to get voting age. Very soon. Demographics is changing rapidly every year as we speak and those young fellas need to get out and vote. We need to ask community start organizing with all the organization, organizing an effort on voting some those folks out of office."
LULAC urged Arizona businesses to relocate to New Mexico where immigrant tolerance is much stronger.
