Advocates to protest along border in NM, Texas

Border Patrol Staffing Imbalance

ANTHONY, N.M. (AP) – Immigrant advocates say they are planning a 100-mile walk along the border in New Mexico and Texas to protest the use of military-style patrols.

The Border Network for Human Rights said they will unveil plans for the two-state walk at a press conference in El Paso.

Organizers say the walk is aimed at protesting the use of the National Guard along the U.S.-Mexico border and to call for President Obama to act on immigration reforms.

Advocates say the walk will include activists and faith leaders from Texas and New Mexico.
