There have been a number of local protests against Arizona's immigration law, but not many garnering much attention in support of it. Tomorrow morning, the Republican Party of Los Angeles County will bring attention to their side of the issue on the South Lawn of City Hall, according to LA Weekly. The group says L.A.'s boycott was to "pander" to Latino votes, that California's immigration law is pretty similar to Arizona's and that Los Angeles has turned into a sanctuary city. The protest is at 8:45 a.m.
