Immigration protest planned in Clovis

........................................................................................................................................................................................

CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) — Immigration rights activists are planning a protest Saturday in Clovis.

Somos Clovis, an affiliate of the statewide immigrant rights organization Somos Un Pueblo Unido, says it will hold a march to demand that Congress pass immigration reform now.

The group says families in Curry County have seen an increase in detention, deportation and separation of families over the past year. They blame what they say has been a heightened collaboration between local jail administrators and immigration enforcement agents.

The protest will be held in conjunction with dozens of groups across the country as part of a national day of action to stop deportations.
