    Reporting from Atlanta—
    Following Arizona's lead, the Georgia Legislature on Thursday passed a strict measure that would empower police to check the immigration status of "criminal" suspects and force many businesses to do the same with potential employees.

    The bill passed in the waning hours of the legislative session despite critics' outcries. Immigrant advocates threatened a state boycott if it became law, and Georgia's powerful agricultural industry warned, among other things, that federal guest worker programs alone could not provide enough laborers to meet farmers' needs.

    Now the measure heads to the desk of Republican Gov. Nathan Deal, who campaigned last year on the promise of implementing an Arizona-style law in a state with, according to one 2009 estimate, 480,000 illegal immigrants — about 20,000 more than Arizona.

    It is about time Mexicans got what they deserve........NOTHING!

    I wish those Mexican invasion advocates would boycott the US!!

    We can get immigrants from anywhere in the world. Why not get some who would actually be grateful to America.

    if this law is not challenged by DOJ Georgia has risen and other state will follow. DOJ cannot sue us all.:clap2:They don't have the money and it is a waste of money and time because we will never stop fighting illegal immigration until it is no more:eusa_whistle:
    Arizona is not finish yet and they will never stop fighting. The toughest sheriff in the west is still on the job.
    This country will not be the greatest again nation until we have conquered illegal immigration. And we have too many diehard fighters and given up is not an options.
    Obama cannot help them and he has never had any intention of giving them amnesty or green cards. You people cannot possible be that stupid to have believe he would as he promised. Promises got him elected and he will find an excuse to get them on his side again. But I don't really believe Obama cares about 2112.

    Mexican opinion of US dwindles amid spread of Arizona-style immigration laws
    April 15, 2011 - Georgia's legislature passed a bill Thursday night giving law enforcement broader authority to verify immigrant status, a move inspired by an Arizona law that many Mexicans called 'racist.'

    Do Americans really care about what a Mexican thinks of him?

    But they should never stop fearing what Americans will do to Mexico if the invaders don't leave.

    It's time that we publish a report on how little Latin America has contributed to the world. They're just a bunch of deadbeats that live off the goodwill of America.

    WE do. 500,000 each year. Doctors, nurses and other professionals and some not so professional. Our immigration system is not broken. No limit on H-2A work visas for farmers. I don't know why the rhetoric that we need illegal aliens are our economy collapse.
    We do not need the 20 million that are here illegally.



    What If 20 Million Illegal
    Aliens Left America?

    Good for Georgia

    I hope that more of the other states will follow George's lead.
