Tea Party Activists Rally On Arizona-Mexico Border

Sunday, 15 Aug 2010 02:13 PM

Tea party activists are gathering along a remote stretch of the Arizona-Mexico border about 70 miles west of Nogales.

They're rallying Sunday on a private ranch in support of Arizona's controversial immigration law. A judge has put much of the law on hold.

The rally is being held near a stretch of the wall made of 15-foot steel posts set closely together to prevent people from crossing the border. People have attached flags with messages about curbing illegal immigration to the posts.

A sound system had not yet been set up Sunday morning. U.S. Senate candidate J.D. Hayworth, who is challenging John McCain in the Republican primary, was scheduled to speak, along with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
