UFW Members Prepare To Challenge Immigration Law

KCBA reported that: Monday night is last minute preperations for five United Farm Worker Members, also known as UFW. They are heading to Salinas to rent a car and get on the road for the 600 mile trek to challenge the immigration law that goes into effect in Arizona on Thursday. "I'm not going to carry anything just my drivers license because I need to drive, but that's the only thing I'm going to take," said UFW member Juan Moran. UFW member Juan Moran wants to make something clear, that the Arizona government doesn't have the right to stop someone who appears to be an illegal immigrant. On Thursday, he and four others will do just that by challenging officers to arrest them for not having any proof of citizenship on hand. "I'm frustrated and angry because I'm pretty sure they are going to discriminate all Latino people. I have citizenship, but they don't know," said Moran.
