(KSL News) Hundreds of Latinos took to the streets of Salt Lake City tonight.

They chanted and carried signs in protest of State Bill 227, recently passed by Utah lawmakers. It would replace immigrants' drivers' licenses with a driving privilege card.

The protestors want Governor Huntsman to veto the bill, saying it could lead to racial profiling and discourage people from driving legally.

Supporters say Utah has become a magnet for undocumented aliens looking to obtain drivers' licenses.
