"Phoenix Rising" Rally Draws Few
A planned rally held today at the Arizona state capitol in Phoenix to support Arizona's controversial SB1070 immigration enforcement law, and organized by Pennsylvania based Voice of the People USA, drew less than a 1000 supporters. Organizers had hoped for 10-15,000. The event was also sponsored by Team America PAC, DiggersRealm.com and Tea Party Nation.
Some blamed the 107 degree heat for the low turnout.
Scheduled speakers included Sheriff Joe Arpaio, AZ State Senator Russel Pearce, and former Republican Congressman Tom Tancredo.
A rally held in opposition to SB1070 back on May 29th drew more than 20,000 protesters.
There are also unconfirmed reports that Recall LA City Hall organizer David Hernandez was seen wandering around during the rally seeking spare change to fund the Recall efforts back in Los Angeles.
