House Bill 87 -- the bad Arizona style state immigration law that does nothing to combat illegal immigration passed the Georgia House of Representatives by a largely party-line vote of 113-56. Since the house is heavily controlled by Republicans it is not a huge surprise that they passed the Illegal Immigration Reform and Enforcement Act of 2011.
The bill now moves to the Senate, where a conference committee would be probably set to resolve any differences between this bill and the Senate's proposed bill. While it may morph to something different, this is such a bad law that it should not be accepted in any way, shape or form and should be vetoed by the Governor before it sees the light of day. I explained at length in my blog previously why this is so bad. You can find the blog post directly here: http://georgiaimmigration.blogspot.com/2011/02/another-bad-piece-of-proposed.html
We'll have to wait and see.
