Pulled over for a broken license-plate light, Tucson PD decide to call Border Patrol on two day laborers leaving the Southside Presbyterian area. Church and community members flood the street and peacefully surround BP vehicle to prevent arrest while wife and child watch. Border patrol gets violent with protesters using pepper spray and rubber bullets, injuring several people. Tucson community resists the inhumanity of SB 1070!
