Simple concept really, enforce the law vigorously watch the illegals disappear.

Fearful she will be deported and separated from her two young sons, Vilma Baltazar steeled her family for a long journey from her small apartment in Chamblee back to her native country, Guatemala.

The single mother is one of many illegal immigrants in metro Atlanta who say they are fleeing Georgia before the state’s tough new immigration enforcement law takes effect on July 1. Others say they are making similar plans in case opponents of the new law are unable to block it in the courts.

This article blows up all the liberal's arguments against immigration enforcement. Not only are illegals fleeing, some to liberal states but we have legal Hispanics opposed to illegals as well.
Quote:

Dora Polanco has been witnessing a similar exodus from her perch in the ticket booth just off Buford Highway at the El Expreso bus stop in Chamblee. She said some of the Hispanic immigrants who approach her counter are leaving Georgia on buses to New York City, where mass transit is more plentiful.

A native of Costa Rica, Polanco sympathizes with the plight of the immigrants, particularly the ones who tell her they are fearful of returning to Mexico amid the drug violence there. But she is also irritated with people who enter the United States illegally and take advantage of taxpayer-funded resources here, including hospitals. She said she and her husband are both U.S. citizens who work hard and pay their taxes.

“That’s not right when you pay taxes and the others don’t,” said Polanco, who lives in Snellville. “I don’t want this country to be poor like my country.”

This woman is the perfect example of why we need such laws:

Georgia’s new law targets people precisely like Baltazar, who illegally crossed over the Mexican border and into the United States with her family eight years ago.
Quote:
The reason: She drives to work without a license and is worried she will get arrested and deported in connection with the tough new law.
Quote:
“We are working,” she said in Spanish. “I believe the law should be for criminals, not for us.”
So let's review. She's lived here eight years. She hasn't bothered to learn English in all that time. She's working in violation of our labor laws. She freely drives without a license. And she doesn't think she's a criminal.

It's about time she left this country. We don't need her and never will. She doesn't speak our language. Her children are a burden on the local system. She feels free to violate our laws against working without permission, driving without a license and coming here in the first place. If officials finally drum it into her tiny brain that she has to get out then law officials are finally doing their jobs.

Unbelievable that these people have no concept of laws and apparently no morals or a conscience either.

I love this comment. This lady is spot on.

Excellent news. I hope many other states follow Arizona's and Georgia's lead.

Illegals Europeans, Asians, etc. They are a unfair financial burden on tax payers. We need to take care of our own citizens first. Lets stop the madness.
