Georgia Governor Signs Controversial Immigration Bill into Law

We previously reported on our blog about the Arizona-style immigration bill that was passed in the Georgia House. Last Friday, Georgia Governor Nathan Deal signed the immigration bill into law.

House Bill 87 gives police authority to question suspects about their immigration status. The law also requires many private employers to check the immigration status of newly hired workers on the federal database E-Verify.

While the ink is still drying on Georgia’s immigration law, small businesses and churches are already publicly opposing the law.
