Recent events such as Arizona’s new immigration law are expected to boost turnout at Saturday’s rallies though there are other vital factors according to New American Media:
Another factor that could boost turnout is word that Latino/Americans won’t be the only ethnic group with a substantial representation in the march. The Asian Journal, which covers the Filipino/American community in Los Angeles and several other cities, recently reported that members of an organization called Bayan USA are planning to participate. Bayan USA is coalition of 14 Filipino/American advocacy groups located throughout the U.S.The Arizona law has faced an increasingly powerful economic and political backlash across the U.S. The edict has even been criticized by some conservatives such as Texas Gov. Rick Perry who said that it “would not be the right direction for Texas."
