ATLANTA (AP) — Gov. Sonny Perdue has signed a bill that would penalize local governments for failing to check the immigration status of people that they hire and those receiving public benefits.

The measure is designed to put teeth in a 2006 law cracking down on illegal immigration in Georgia. That law required governments and companies that do government business to use federal databases to check the immigration status of those that they hire. But there was no penalty for failing to do so. GOP lawmakers said some local governments were ignoring the law.

Under the new measure, governments that fail to run the checks could lose funds in the state budget.

The new law takes effect Jan 1.

Hooray for Governor Perdue.

E-verify should be mandatory across the board. If a business can take a freaking credit card they can use this system.

I couldnít agree more. They donít want to use E-Verify because they know it will expose them as being employers of illegal aliens.

We need a whole lot more of this approach. Go after the employers. No one will care if the government confiscates their businesses and bank accounts to help pay back society and pay for their crimes.

All of the employers have the option of hiring an American or sponsoring a legal immigrant but what they want is dirt cheap servants that the taxpayers support.

Too bad Georgia waited until the situation had gotten absolutely ridiculous before finally being forced to take some action. My brother and his wife had a beautiful new home in Gwinnett Count, but moved after just two years because of the illegal alien problem in that county. It was out of control, might still be, I'm not sure if Georgia acted soon enough to make any difference, once those "anchors" are planted, there's not much that can be done I don't believe.

The Carpet Mills/Manufacturers, located in Dalton Georgia, Mohawk, Shaw Industries and Beauleiu, are most of the problem in Georgia. They come here to Texas and load up buses of them, to take there for cheap labor. They weed through them and toss the ones that don't cut it. Now georgia has a Mexican problem.

Mohawk Carpets was busted 2 years ago for having illegals, with a very small slap on the hand, and business as usual.
