ODESSA - Some new bills in the Texas house targeting minorities. That's why the local Una Voz Anida group is gathering Tuesday to demonstrate.

They'll be at the Ector County Courthouse on fourth and Grant on Tuesday from 3:30 p.m. until 6 p.m.

Organizer Art Leal says it will be a peaceful demonstration to explain some upcoming bills in Austin.

"We are practicing our first amendment right to demonstrate.  We would certainly love anyone to come out and they can share their own opinions.  We will have a group of people out there that will be showing our concerns for some of the bills that are coming through," Leal said.

One of the bills the group is concerned about is denying birth certificates to people born in the U.S. to illegal immigrants.

They encourage you to make signs to bring to the event.
