WEST PALM BEACH(WFLX)---More than one hundred protestors took to the streets of downtown West Palm Beach to stage a rally in front of the office of Florida Attorney General and candidate for governor Bill McCollum.

They were going off about Arizona's controversial immigration law. Holding signs and chanting Saturday evening. The group says they want to drum up grassroots support for immigrant's rights now.

They fear that the new rules in Arizona could be coming here to Florida and worry Mccollum's support will help make it a reality.

Coalition for Immigrant Rights Lynn Purvis said, "we just want to put it out there right now that we will not tolerate any of that. We do not tolerate racism or this inhumane treatment of people."
