Human rights groups in Washington are lashing out against the recently-signed immigration bill in Arizona, and students are joining in too.
Jheanelle Brown is a graduating senior at Georgetown University and the outgoing president of her school's NAACP chapter. She says her chapter is unequivocally opposed to the plan, and says the plan targets all people of color, not just Latinos.
“What’s happening in Arizona could be compounded in other states, and states specifically that share a border with Mexico. So I’m scared what kind of precedent this will set,” says Brown.
Brown says since the school year is winding down her chapter may not do much.
But, if the issue is still around when classes resume in the fall, she expects college chapters of the NAACP to work alongside Latino rights groups in opposing the bill.
