Baca Distributes Bracelets Opposing Arizona Law

Rep. Joe Baca (D-Calif.) is urging his House colleagues to wear bracelets proclaiming their opposition to Arizona’s strict new immigration law.

Baca, a former chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, distributed the red and navy bracelets — which read “No to Arizona’s Immigration Law” — during a series of House votes Thursday evening.

“I’m encouraging everyone — in solidarity — to wear them,” he said, adding that there “seems to be a lot of interest” among CHC members as well as more broadly.

Among the lawmakers who plan to display a bracelet are Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.).
