Several NAACP members, led by their national president, staged a sit-in Tuesday at the Alabama office of U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions to protest his nomination to be the nation's next attorney general.

Nearly a dozen members of the civil rights organization sat in Sessions' office in Mobile, Alabama — the city the Republican senator calls home. NAACP President Cornell William Brooks said they intended to remain there until they were able to speak with Sessions — or were removed.

The group raised concerns about multiple aspects of Sessions' record including his prosecution of African-American activists for alleged voting fraud when he was a U.S. attorney. Brooks said Sessions "can't be trusted to be the chief law enforcement officer for voting rights."
