Atlanta-(WAOK) After threats that Georgia could face the same fate as Arizona if Governor Deal signs the recently passed immigration bill into law, a human rights group has cancelled plans to visit the state.

The U.S. Human Rights Network, a nonprofit organization based in Atlanta, has canceled plans to hold its biannual conference in Atlanta this year. A spokesperson for the organization says it was expecting more than 600 people from across the country to attend the meeting in December.

The meeting will be relocated to another state because of Georgia’s House Bill 87. A new location has not yet been selected. Check out more on the story from the AJC
