Remarks of Adelina Nicholls, Director of the Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights at HB87/HB56 Court of Appeals 11th District press conference:
Today in this courtroom, humble people, undocumented immigrants stood to defend the constitution against the hateful laws of the states of georgia and alabama.
Instead of treating immigrants like criminals in Georgia, we should be treated for what we are, hard-workers, family members, and defenders of the rights of all of us.
When we defend the rights of immigrants, we defend the rights of us all. But when immigrants are attacked, we all suffer. Ask any farmer in Georgia whether that’s true.
