    The Georgia and Alabama Anti-Immigration Laws
    June 24, 2011
    by Daniel Altschuler

    As draconian immigration bills pass state houses, it’s comforting to know that we have the courts. Arizona’s SB 1070 has been rebuffed twice in federal court, and Alabama and Georgia’s copycat laws in Alabama (HB 56) and Georgia (HB 87) will face similar legal challenges. But while the courts are critical for protecting minority rights, the judiciary alone cannot protect our country from an anti-immigrant offensive.

    Anti-immigration advocates are working hard to spread these laws further and make them stick in court. Pro-immigrant advocates and allies around the country must thus muster a strong response to break their momentum.

    I believe this is the right thing to do no matter the cost.
    The cost of freedom has never come cheap. We will have to learn to do without cheap labor.

    Speaking of Draconian immigration laws.....just look at Mexico's.

    Non-citizens may not own property
    Only a prescribed amount of foreigners may immigrate to Mexico
    If you do not contribute to Mexican society you cannot live there
    Mexico has a "Law of Population" which controls volume, structure, and distribution of foreigners
    Mexican culture cannot be infringed on by foreign culture
    Any altering of the national demographics of Mexico is considered harmful
    Mexicans have priority over foreigners for jobs
    Foreigners can only serve in the military during wartime
    You cannot apply for government assistance if you are a non-citizen
    You have to be able to support yourself to remain in the country
