Immigration Crackdown - Georgia: ‘Day without immigrants’

‘Day without immigrants’ | timesfreepress.com: "It wasn’t quite a day without immigrants in Dalton on Friday, but a couple of dozen businesses closed their doors in support of immigrants and in opposition to Georgia’s new immigration law. ...

Groups throughout the state organized several events this weekend in opposition to House Bill 87, the Illegal Immigration Reform and Enforcement Act of 2011, which went into effect three days before the country celebrates Independence Day.

Friday was a “Day Without Immigrants,” when businesses were asked to close and shoppers were asked to stay home.

Today the Georgia Latino Alliance For Human Rights expects more than 20,000 people to march in front of the state Capitol, including participants from North Carolina, Louisiana and Washington, D.C."
