Nationwide Immigration Demonstration Planned for Monday

Immigrants and supporters of immigrants' rights in the United States are planning a new round of demonstrations against immigration reform Monday.

Organizers of a march in the state of Arizona, which borders Mexico, say they expect as many as 100,000 demonstrators in the city of Phoenix as they march to the state capitol building.

Similar marches are planned across the nation, in the latest of a series of such protests. The protesters are concerned about legislation passed by the U.S. House of Representatives that would make it a felony to be an illegal immigrant. The legislation would also punish employers who hire illegal immigrants.
