July 29th: Vigils Against Arizona's Law SB1070

Albuquerque faith groups, along with hundreds across the United States, will hold a Vigil for Immigration Reform on July 29th from 7-8pm at First Congregational UCC (corner of Girard & Lomas).

July 29,2010 is the date that Arizona's law will go into effect which has local law enforcement checking immigration status. The law has been condemned by faith groups around the world. The law has also been challenged by the US Dept of Justice, ACLU, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund, Tucson police officer Martin Escobar, and the National Coalition of Latino Clergy and Christian Leaders.
