Georgia immigration Bill

Posted on March 26, 2011. Filed under: Immigration | Tags: |

A number of groups are planning to descend on the Georgia capitol building in Atlanta to protest a tough immigration law currently being considered by legislators.

House Bill 87 would require employers in the Peach State to use the federal E-Verify system to check the work eligibility of employees and also allow law enforcement officials to check the immigration status of people in some circumstances, according to CNN.

The bill is being protested by Georgia Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition (GLAHR) and the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials (GALEO).

“Thousands of Georgia immigrants and allies are coming together to say no more to racial profiling and no more to the dangerous and unfair targeting of immigrant communities and communities of color,” GLAHR director Adelina Nicholls told the news source.
