DALLAS (AP) - About a dozen people were carrying signs depicting Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer as a Nazi and an Arizona sheriff as a Klansman at an immigration rally in Dallas.
The signs showed Brewer in a Nazi uniform with her arm extended in a Nazi salute. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, known for his tough illegal immigration stance, was depicted wearing a white hood
and holding a noose.
The word "Arizona" was printed across the bottom, with the z replaced by a swastika.
Organizers of the Saturday march, which was expected to draw up to 100,000 people, were asking sign holders to discard the placards.
The protests center around an Arizona law requiring authorities to question people about their immigration status if they are suspected of being in the country illegally.
