It's good to see the attention this issue has been getting again, all good proposals in stopping this travesty.

Former Rep. Nathan Deal (R-Ga.), who resigned his seat earlier this year to focus on running for governor in Georgia, said he supports Arizona's new immigration enforcement bill, and if elected, he'll bring it to Georgia.
Nathan Deal was a leader on the immigration issue when he was in
Congress. He helped Rep. Charlie Norwood draft the CLEAR Act, which is
now sponsored by Rep. Martha Blackburn (R-Tenn.). He also took charge on
the birthright citizenship bill after Rep. Brian Bilbray left Comgress.
He was the lead sponsor for the bill the last few Congresses, including
the current Congress. He fought amnesty and pushed enforcement in
H.R.4437 and safeguarded against illegal aliens getting covered in the
health care reform bills.

Good for him.

Enforcement of the law categorizes people as right wing fascists? Well, you'll be happy to know that the new Arizona law and those like it which are being proposed across the country are actually right in line with federal law.

In 1996, President Bill Clinton signed a bill into law which empowers states to enforce federal immigration law and to be supported by federal agencies such as ICE in the process. I suppose that makes Bill Clinton a right wing fascist as well.
