Maybe Georgia and all these ACLU fools should sue Mexica? Have they looked at Mexico's immigration law? Nah of course not.

"In addition, the American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia, the “Southern Poverty Law Center and several other civil and immigrant rights groups also filed a federal class-action lawsuit … asking a judge to halt the measure pending the outcome of their case.” The line of reasoning is “that the measure – also known as House Bill 87 – is preempted by federal law and is ‘unconstitutional.’”


The opposing groups argue that the Georgia law “establishes a ‘show-me-your-papers’ police state, encourages racial profiling, endangers public safety and betrays American values,” which up until recently included respect for the law and made it a priority to ensure the well-being of American citizens.


In essence, the lawsuits petition the American legal system to back off upholding its own laws by demanding criminals be allowed to infiltrate American borders, steal jobs and earn wages without proper identification.
In its brief, Mexico argues in support of halting the law, citing that “HB 87 substantially and inappropriately burdens the consistent country to country relations between Mexico and the United States of America.” Apparently, Mexico believes that Georgia’s effort to help identify and address illegal perpetrators, gun runners, drug cartels, and banditos who’ve been known to shoot and kill American citizens, Border patrol agents, and ICE officials is what “burdens … consistent country to country relations between Mexico and the US.”


Mexico also parroted the discrimination concept introduced by Barack Obama when he said the Arizona immigration law was a “poorly conceived law” that would “try to make it really tough on people who look like illegal immigrants.” Mexico said Georgia’s immigration law would interfere “with the strategic diplomatic interests of the two countries and [is] encouraging an imminent threat of state-sanctioned bias or discrimination.” Sound familiar?


State officials in Georgia reacted to the opposition by filing “court papers…seeking to dismiss the lawsuit,” maintaining the “law is constitutional and predict it will survive the court challenge.” In an effort to do the job the federal government won’t do, “Proponents say the state needed to act to curb illegal immigration because the federal government has failed to secure the nation’s borders.”


Illegal immigrants, who shouldn’t be in Georgia in the first place, and whose
presence burdens “the state’s taxpayer-funded resources, including public schools, jails and hospitals,” spoke out accusing supporters of Georgia’s new law of “burdening the state’s taxpayer-funded resources, including public schools, jails and hospitals” – a comment that makes about as much sense as Obama’s Arizona lawsuit/ice cream argument.


The state of Georgia decided the responsible thing to do was to enforce the immigration law. However, if the suit that seeks to prevent Georgia from doing so succeeds, it would set a disturbing precedent that would enable foreign countries to dictate and decide what sovereign American states can and cannot do to control the problem of illegal immigration."

I imagine the Federal government will side with Mexico against Georgia's law since they are pro "do nothing" about this.

Pretty incredible. Of course, when you consider the fact that these illegals are able to leech off of our tax dollars for medical care, police protection, education, and the like, while spending very little money here and sending the rest back to family members in their home countries to stimulate their economies, it isn't all that surprising. We are not at all against immigrants. Just do it legally please!

Too damn bad we don't have a federal government that's willing to protect this country from foreign intervention into our internal affairs.

This new law is a great opportunity, there are now 11,000 openings for veggie pickers in Georgia so Unemployment will be able to force formerly Middle Class Americans to pick veggies for minimum wage.
Don't worry about child care though, they can work right along side you!!

Used to be that migrant workers came here and got "work visas" and worked the fields. What's so hard about the illegals doing that so they CAN work here legally ?

The H-2A program allows U.S. employers to bring foreign nationals to the United States to fill temporary agricultural jobs for which U.S. workers are not available. H-2A nonimmigrant classification applies to aliens seeking to perform agricultural labor or services of a temporary or seasonal nature in the United States on a temporary basis.
