PHOENIX — The Rev. Al Sharpton, Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon and Hispanic leaders will lead a Wednesday evening march to the Arizona State Capitol in a protest against the state’s new law targeting illegal immigration.

Organizers plan a gathering at a church near downtown Phoenix and then a three-mile candlelight procession to the Capitol. Participants will then join a vigil at the Capitol in protest of the new law.

The law’s provisions include a requirement that state and local law enforcement officers question people about their immigration status if there’s reason to suspect they’re in the country illegally. It also makes it a state crime to be in the United States illegally.
