Phoenix, Arizona. April 25, 2012 - Phoenix Police officer L. Hunt and demonstrator Sandra Castro stare at each other. They came face to face as officers were slowly pushing protesters back toward the sidewalk. About 500 people protested the controversial law on the same day U.S. Supreme Court justices heard legal arguments on the Arizona vs. United States case. At the end of the march, six activists blocked Central Avenue by sitting in the middle of the street. They all were arrested by the Phoenix Police Department and taken to the Fourth Avenue County Jail. Photo by Eduardo Barraza © 2012
