Republican Senate candidates Sharron Angle of Nevada and JD Hayworth of Arizona will rally with supporters of Arizona’s law targeting illegal immigration along the southwestern border in Arizona this weekend.

A federal judge recently struck down portions of Arizona’s SB1070 immigration law.

The Patriot Caucus and United We Stand for Americans will hold the United Border Coalition rally Sunday in Sierra Vista, Ariz. Others expected to attend are Maricopa Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Tea Party Nation founder Judson Phillips.

According to the event’s website, the United Border Coalition Tea Party Rally’s purpose is to show support for Arizona’s right to enforce the “common sense law that enables Arizona to enforce federal law on illegal immigration.”
