PHOENIX (AP) - Guatemalan pop star Ricardo Arjona is bringing a pro-immigration tour to Arizona.

The Grammy winner is scheduled to give a concert in Phoenix on Tuesday evening. The event kicks off the Arizona leg of the Keeping Families Together Story Tour, which focuses on families splintered because of immigration policy.

The tour will make stops this week in Tucson and Yuma. It is also scheduled to travel to other states, including California, Nevada, New York and Florida.

Arjona's 2005 song "Mojado" honored undocumented immigrants. He was nominated for four Latin Grammys in 2012.

Arizona Republican Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake are members of a bipartisan Senate group working to overhaul the nation's immigration system.
