Latino advocates fight AZ law at Texas convention

SAN ANTONIO — Hispanic leaders are focused on Arizona's tough new immigration law as one of the nation's largest Latino conferences gets under way.

National Council of La Raza president Janet Murguia said Friday that discussing ways to combat the law will seep into every topic at the group's national convention that begins this weekend in San Antonio.

NCLR expects more than 25,000 people to attend.

Murguia attended a naturalization ceremony for a dozen members of the military who were sworn in as U.S. citizens. Federal officials say they joined more than 6,700 service members naturalized as U.S. citizens so far this year.

The NCLR convention runs through Monday.
