Tea Party activists will descend upon Arizona this weekend to show their support for the state’s new immigration law with a "buycott" campaign to support state businesses.
The campaign aims to get people who support the law to come to the state this weekend to spend their money and support state businesses after opponents of the state's new immigration law have organized protests and boycotts of the state and its businesses.
St. Louis Tea Party leader Gina Loudon, founder of Buycott Arizona, said businesses in the state have been punished unfairly because of the boycotts. "The whole idea is to spend money to offset the boycott," Loudon said.
The campaign expects thousands to attend a rally Saturday evening in Tempe, Ariz., where Loudon and other activists will speak.
