Activists to protest Ariz. immigration law

By Washington Post Editors

Local activists are protesting Arizona's new immigration law in the nation's capital.

Organizers say they will gather at noon on Saturday in Dupont Circle in downtown Washington for an artistic expression event and rally. They say they will then march to the White House.

Among those expected to address the crowd include Rodrigo Leiva, leader of the Latino Federation of Greater Washington; Gustavo Torres, head of Casa de Maryland; and sports writer David Zirin.
Protesters say it's part of many events planned across the country against Arizona's new law, which allows police to question anyone they suspect of being in the country illegally. They're also calling for an end to the Secure Communities program that sends inmates' fingerprint information to ICE and the FBI.
