There were many arrests made by Phoenix Police due to unlawful assembly and obstructing a public thoroughfare, according to Fox10.
The rally came together to challenge roundups of illegal immigrants in the U.S. that will reportedly occur over the weekend. Its expected there will be arrests made of unlawful immigrants facing deportation in at least 10 major U.S. cities likely to begin on Sunday. ICE officials have not come out with a statement to confirm.
There are similar “Lights for Liberty” events occurring nationwide to bring attention to the immigration facility conditions located in the southern U.S.
