Sharpton headlines rally against new illegal immigration law | ajc.com
Opponents of Georgia's tough illegal immigration law descended on the state Capitol Saturday afternoon for a rally headlined by the Rev. Al Sharpton.
More than five charter buses emptied out several hundred people for the nearly one-hour downtown Atlanta rally, where Sharpton and other speakers said House Bill 87 violates civil and human rights and will lead to racial profiling.
"America's got to work for everybody or it doesn't work for anybody," Sharpton said. "Immigration is a federal policy and it must remain on a federal level with federal enforcement."
