Groups sue over Georgia's immigration law



Published: Thu, June 2, 2011 @ 1:13 p.m.

ATLANTA — Civil liberties groups say they've filed a lawsuit to block Georgia's law cracking down on illegal immigration.

An attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union said the groups filed a lawsuit today seeking class-action status. The lawsuit names Gov. Nathan Deal and several other state officials as plaintiffs.

Part of the Georgia law being challenged authorizes law enforcement to check the immigration status of a suspect who cannot provide identification.

The law-enforcement provision in Georgia's law is similar to a Utah law enacted this year and echoes some parts of a law in Arizona. All or parts of those laws have been blocked by federal judges.

they are not paying taxes over running the country and costing us millions. Sherriff Joe in Arizona had the right idea. There should be military on the border, Obama is not doing his job. Protect the border.

It's a shame that states have to enact laws that the feds refuse to. Why do any of these illegals have any rights whatsoever in this country? Once found, they should be sent back to their OWN country at once. We don't need them here nor are they wanted.

Quick fix for immigration that the reich-wing will never go for because they're conflicted. 40% hate anyone thats brown, about 10% are really concerned with rule of law, and the rest of you think cheap labor is great.

Heres the fix:

Starting tomorrow, if any business is caught hiring or employing an illegal immigrant, the owner of the business is fined $20 million and is sent to jail for 25 years. Problem solved. It will probably destroy the economy, but not another illegal will cross the border for a job, because they wont be able to work.

And of course its President Obama's fault. You trolls are funny.

@anti-fascist ...... what part of "illegal alien" is difficult for you to comprehend? The system now bestows benefits & priveleges that are not available to our tax paying citizens, on those entering our country illegally. Why do you NOT object to that. Dig DEEP for some logical justification ! Don't simply repeat left wing mantra, simply giving them a pass. Our borders must be secure ! This is exactly where it must begin.
