Hundreds of protestors lined the streets in downtown Atlanta in opposition to Georgia’s new immigration law.Adelina Nicholls from the Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights said they’re fighting for mothers and kids who will be affected by the new law.”We are afraid but we are here … it will not stop the movement for immigration reform,” Nicholls said.Nicholls said families made up of legal and illegal immigrants will be forced to make tough decisions — possibly split up or go back to their home country.Antonio Cortes said some families have already decided to leave the country.”A lot of people tell me they are afraid to drive and they are going back to Mexico. They are really confused about the future,” Cortes said.The author of House Bill 87, Rep. Matt Ramsey, said the intent of the law is to encourage immigrants to enter the country legally.
