5.4 Phoenix - Cinco de mayo festival to include a Sheriff Joe piñata

There is a new organization called the Pueblo Center for Legal and Human Rights. They are using Cinco de Mayo to kick off a campaign to help end what they call hateful attacks against immigrants. As a symbolic message, members plan to break a Sheriff Joe Arpaio piñata during their celebration.

Arpaio says it's a sad idea. "This is freedom of speech, they want to do that. I just don't like it because of the young people. It sends a bad message to young people that they're trying to beat up the chief law enforcement officer," said the Sheriff, who has made cracking down on illegal immigrants one of his priorities.

Pueblo said its goal is to raise youth consciousness of human rights while fending off attacks against immigrants by the sheriff, state legislature and local groups.

Lots of people, of Hispanic and other cultures, will be celebrating Cinco de Mayo (Fifth of May). It celebrates the day in 1810 when a small Mexican militia defeated the mighty French Army near the City of Pueblo. The day is not really a big holiday in Mexico, except in Pueblo, but here in the United States, it's a tribute to Mexican heritage and pride.

Phoenix Police are warning there will have extra patrols out looking for suspected drunken drivers. In Tempe, police will be out until 3:00 a.m. Tuesday patrolling near bars and nightclubs.

Some Cinco de Mayo celebrations began over the weekend. Police said they made more than 100 DUI arrests statewide during the weekend.
