Around 250 protesters gathered in Phoenix, Arizona on Wednesday to protest Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and Arizona governor Doug Ducey, who is planning to accept new laws on illegal immigration.

Anti-deportation protesters marched to the House of Representatives in Phoenix and headed to the Capitol Museum. The activists stormed the museum, waving an effigy of Donald Trump and chanting anti-deportation slogans until the police arrived. No incidents or clashes were reported.

Arizona is known to have some of the stricted immigration laws in the US. In February, Arizona passed the SB1070 law, which allows police officers to ask for proof of status from those they "suspect" are undocumented.
