Immigration Politics - Georgia: Immigration bill targeted at rally

Immigration bill targeted at rally: "'Please don't separate my family.'

'We are humans.'

'Hope and change.'

Those were some of the posters several children carried, written in English and Spanish, during a rally Saturday morning in Gainesville's Roosevelt Square.

People packed the square to hear messages and songs against state House Bill 87, which cracks down on illegal immigration in the state by increasing some enforcement powers and requiring many employers to check the immigration status of new hires.

It was signed into law earlier this month by (Georgia) Gov. Nathan Deal."
