PHOENIX (KNXV) - The Department of Public Safety is preparing for a rally protesting President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration, which is expected to cause traffic delays on a Valley freeway.

In a Facebook invite called “Anti-Fascist march and #General Strike,” the organizer urged people to meet at Los Altos Ranch Market, near Roosevelt and 16th streets, at 3 p.m. on Friday.

According to a description on the page, they’ll be standing up for all immigrants, documented and undocumented.

DPS and Phoenix Police confirmed to ABC15 they "have a plan in place to work with other law enforcement and governmental partners."
