Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal has signed a bill that cracks down on illegal immigration by increasing some enforcement powers and requiring many employers to check the immigration status of new hires.
Deal on Friday signed the bill that has some similarities to a controversial bill enacted last year in Arizona.
Most parts of the Georgia law are set to enter into effect July 1. But opponents have said they plan to file lawsuits seeking to block it.
A requirement for private employers to use a federal database to check the immigration status of new hires is set to be phased in.
The new law also authorizes law enforcement officers to check the immigration status of certain suspects and to detain those who are in the country illegally.
This sounds very much like what occurred in Arizona… the purpose of these immigrations, unbeknownst to most people, is a way of padding the pockets of the private prisons. Most of these prisons incarcerate lower level crimes as opposed to the more violent offenders within our system. This allows private prisons to house more, with a lower level of staff. Pack them in like sardines….
By passing this bill, the state may then arrest more illegals then more likely than not, they will find their way to a private prison – of which Arizona has three:
Coffee County Prison – Owned by CCA
Wheeler County Prison – Owned by CCA
D Ray James SP – Owned by Cornell Corrections
