    Parts of Georgia immigration law blocked

    The threat of the new law has already led to thousands of migrant workers fleeing Georgia
    By REID J. EPSTEIN
    6/27/11

    A federal judge in Atlanta blocked portions of Georgia’s new law that would have punished people who aid illegal immigrants and allowed local police to check the legal status of anyone not carrying identification,

    Beyond refusing to help with our state’s illegal immigration problem, the federal government is determined to be an obstacle.
    The Associated Press reported Monday.

    Federal Immigration and Nationality Act
    Section 8 USC 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv)(b)(iii)

    "Any person who . . . encourages or induces an alien to . . . reside . . . knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such . . . residence is . . . in violation of law, shall be punished as provided . . . for each alien in respect to whom such a violation occurs . . . fined under title 18 . . . imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both."

    Section 274 felonies under the federal Immigration and Nationality Act, INA 274A(a)(1)(A):

    A person (including a group of persons, business, organization, or local government) commits a federal felony when she or he:

    * assists an alien s/he should reasonably know is illegally in the U.S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting, sheltering, or assisting him or her to obtain employment, or

    * encourages that alien to remain in the U.S. by referring him or her to an employer or by acting as employer or agent for an employer in any way, or

    * knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions.
    Penalties upon conviction include criminal fines, imprisonment, and forfeiture of vehicles and real property used to commit the crime. Anyone employing or contracting with an illegal alien without verifying his or her work authorization status is guilty of a misdemeanor. Aliens and employers violating immigration laws are subject to arrest, detention, and seizure of their vehicles or property. In addition, individuals or entities who engage in racketeering enterprises that commit (or conspire to commit) immigration-related felonies are subject to private civil suits for treble damages and injunctive relief.


    State and local law enforcement officials have the general power to investigate and arrest violators of federal immigration statutes without prior INS knowledge or approval, as long as they are authorized to do so by state law.

    The 1996 immigration control legislation passed by Congress was intended to encourage states and local agencies to participate in the process of enforcing federal immigration laws.

    Aiding, abetting, harboring, encouraging illegals a felony

    The feds do NOT want these laws enforced. It's that simple. What could be their motive? Hmmmmm.

    In my opinion the First law to break is refuse to pay taxes.

    Stop buying Chinese goods!!!

    States start deporting illegal aliens and ignore the government make them come make you behave.

    The government is breaking it's own federal laws and by the States upholding the Federal laws, lawmakers are calling the States law breakers. This is B.S.

    Whites do break the laws, they hire the illegals. That is why they are there.

    The States have the Constitutional Authority to Protect their Borders From Illegal Aliens
    By Robert Greenslade © Nitwit Press
    October 04, 2010


    'The battle raging between the federal government and the State of Arizona over its so-called anti immigration law has raised some constitutional issues that will ultimately be decided by the United States Supreme Court. It has been asserted by the federal government that the States are precluded from protecting their borders and controlling illegal aliens because the Constitution grants the federal government these powers. This assertion is erroneous because the individual States, as sovereign political entities, have the absolute right to protect their borders from illegal aliens irrespective of the Constitution or any power granted to the federal government.'

    *****************************************************************

    The states I'm sure will figure it out.....even after YOU read the U.S. Constitution.
