Immigration rally held in downtown Miami

MIAMI (AP) - Activists have gathered in South Florida to call for immigration reform in the United States and decry a controversial new Arizona law.

Hundreds of women, men and children chanted, carried signed and waved flags at a rally in downtown Miami on Saturday.

One Colombian woman said the attendees of the rally wanted liberty, and said they "don't want to be marginalized and treated like delinquents."

The demonstration was held May 1, a traditional day of protest and International Workers Day.

Similar rallies also occurred across the country.

Arizona's tough new law is aimed at cracking down on illegal immigration in the state.
