Hundreds march in protest of Arizona immigration law?

Hundreds of people have gathered in a small central Florida town to protest Arizona's controversial new immigration law.

Event organizers from Youth for Change Ministry Inc. and Farmworkers Ministry Inc. said they wanted to bring people together from different religious backgrounds. Protesters marched peacefully Saturday, ending their walk at Our Lady of Guadalupe church.

A group of nearly 50 counter-protestors also turned out.

In Arizona, thousands marched to the state Capitol for the same cause.

It is a legitimate news story when "hundreds" or "thousands" march in protest of Arizona's new immigration law.

But, these stories should also note that the overwhelming majority of all Americans support Arizona's law, as well as strict enforcement of all immigration laws. It's dishonest to merely note "50 counter-protestors".
