Under a new state law, driving without a license equals at least two days in jail. A fourth conviction is a felony.

And because the Whitfield County Sheriff's Office is among four law enforcement agencies in Georgia participating in the 287(g) federal immigration program, landing in jail could mean deportation.
Violating the law for the fourth time in that situation is a felony?

"On one hand it has become harder for undocumented people who live here in Dalton," he said of the program. "But on the other, there are undocumented people who do things they shouldn't be doing and because of them all of us are affected."

Well, perhaps following the laws without feeling entitled to be above or violating them in the first place would be better, don't you think?

Dalton Georgia is nothing but one big carpet mill. The whole town revolves around the carpet industry.
Mohawk carpets got it's hand slapped for hiring illegals. All the carpet manufacturers in Dalton are guilty of transporting illegals from Texas to Georgia, for cheap labor. Now they are fixing to be homeless. Watchout Dalton!!
