"Stand with Arizona Buycott" draws thousands to the Valley

Posted: Updated:

TEMPE - While those against SB 1070 marched to the Capitol early Saturday, another group expressed their opinions in support of Arizona with a rally at Tempe Diablo Stadium on Saturday evening.

Phillip Dennis with the Dallas Tea Party and business owner Bob Thomas talked with 3TV about the Stand with Arizona Buycott with the goal to counter the boycott of Arizona that many states and cities around the country are having after the passage of the immigration bill.

Thousands turned out for the tea party event which Dennis said should generate lots of money for the Phoenix-metro area.

Speakers at the event expressed their support of SB 1070 and praised Arizona for taking a stand against illegal immigration.
