Staff Report • Jul 15, 2014 at 3:58 PM

The Tennessee chapter of a national organization aimed at ending illegal immigration and closing the border between the U.S. and Mexico will hold a rally this weekend in Johnson City.

On Saturday between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., Overpasses for America will conduct a rally on the Princeton Road overpass over Interstate 26 near Exits 20A and 20B to speak out against illegal immigration.

In a press release issued Tuesday, OFA officials said the rally was aimed at calling on elected officials to close the southern U.S. border and deny blanket amnesty for illegal aliens.

Members of the public are welcome to attend. For more information about OFA, visit its website at overpassesforamerica.org.
