Dozens of demonstrators protest outside Romney fundraiser
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - On the same day the U.S. Supreme Court announced its decision on Arizona's controversial SB 1070 immigration law, Republican Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney held a campaign fundraiser inside the Scottsdale Plaza Resort, about 50 demonstrators protested outside in the heat. They were voicing their displeasure against both Romney and SB-1070.
Carlos Galindo of the Immigrant Advocacy Foundation said the Supreme Court decision was "bittersweet."
"We saw some provisions struck down, and we saw the segment that allows for what we consider racial profiling to stand. It's of grave concern," Galindo said.
Galindo said that Romney wants immigrants to "self deport."
"It's important that we repudiate Mitt Romney on his previous comments," said Galindo. "We don't believe that he's taken a softer stance on the immigrant community. We believe he's just pandering for votes."
Galindo said he's happy most of SB-1070 was struck down by the court.
