Bad Mormon: Mitt Romney in Mesa

1 of 21


Members of the Arizona DREAM Act Coalition raise a giant banner reading "DREAM ACT NOW" outside the Mesa Amphitheatre where Mitt Romney was speaking.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's recent appearance at the Mesa Amphitheatre drew thousands of supporters and a number of dedicated opponents. The latter group included members of the Arizona DREAM Act Coalition and dog owners dubbing themselves "Mutts Against Mitt," a poke at Romney's infamous 12-hour family car ride to Canada with his Irish setter Seamus strapped to the roof of the vehicle in a kennel.

Supporters of Congressman Ron Paul also made some noise, with one pro-Paul protester arrested. For an in-depth look at how Romney's immigration stance conflicts with teachings of his own faith, see this week's feature story, "Bad Mormon." PHOTOS BY JAMIE PEACHEY.
