Opposing sides set to square off over Georgia immigration law

Atlanta (CNN) -- Supporters and critics of Georgia's controversial new immigration law will face off in federal court Monday.

Several immigrant and civil rights organizations say the law, which aims to crack down on illegal immigration, is unconstitutional. They filed a class-action lawsuit earlier this month, asking a federal judge to stop the law before it goes into effect July 1.

Attorneys representing the state have filed a motion to dismiss the case.
