Georgia's Controversial Immigration Law

Friday, April 15, 2011

Controversial legislation seeking to address illegal immigration in Georgia has passed both houses of the General Assembly. The bill is does some of the same things as Arizon'a controversial immigration law, SB 1070. The bill allows police to check citizenship status of people pulled over for traffic violation; it also makes it mandatory for employers to check the status of their workers. While Georgia's governor, Nathan Deal, has campaigned on this issue, he may not actually sign it. Melissa Stiers, reporter for Georgia Public Radio has the latest.
