STATE CAPITOL, Phoenix – Sen. Steve Gallardo will join students from Carl Hayden High School to march to the State Capitol on Wednesday, March 9 at 3:30 p.m. to protest SB1611, the immigration omnibus bill. The group will gather at the the high school football field at 3:30 p.m. and proceed to the Capitol.
“Republicans have proved yet again that their priorities are not jobs, education or health care,” said Sen. Steve Gallardo. “There will not be any halt by the Republican Majority to the immigration legislation to work on the budget like they proclaimed last week. Instead, we are seeing a laundry list of legislation that is full of distractions from the real business of Arizona.”
The students will be leaving after completion of the school day and are working in conjunction with law enforcement and the school district to march safely to the Capitol.
The Carl Hayden High School is located at 3333 W. Roosevelt, Phoenix, Ariz.
