Phoenix, Arizona. May 29, 2010 - Thousands of demonstrators participated in a pro-immigration reform rally and march to protest the recent enactment of Arizona controversial immigration law SB 1070, also known as the "Show Me Your Papers" law. People gathered at Steele Indian Park and marched from there to the Arizona State Capitol. This scene shows a man cheering the crowd as thousands of people leave the park to begin the march. The man holds a sign that reads, "Brown and Proud, Todos Somos Arizona ("We Are All Arizona") in reference to Indigenous peoples, Mexican-Americans, Chicanos, Latinos and Hispanics, as people of brown skin choose to call themselves. Critics of the SB 1070 law say it will lead to the practice of racial profiling once it is put into effect. Since the massive immigration demonstrations in 2006, Arizona has been called "ground zero" of the immigration debate, mainly due to legislation approved to fight illegal immigration in the state.
