A group of undocumented immigrants is launching a national bus tour from Arizona this week to promote immigrant rights and protest deportations. The riders are planning stops in Southern states that have passed restrictive immigration laws.
The bus tour's slogan is 'No Papers, No Fear.' The riders ultimately plan to arrive in North Carolina by the end of next month, in time for the Democratic National Convention.
In the wake of the Supreme Court's ruling on Arizona's SB 1070 immigration law, the legal battles continue in the five other states that passed similar laws. Georgia and Alabama's immigration enforcement laws are back before a federal appeals court.
