HB87 is now law in Georgia. Well, at least until someone (like a federal judge) stops it from being implemented (which I sure hope so). Georgia Governor Nathan Deal signed a controversial immigration bill today requiring all Georgia employers (except the very small companies) to sign up for E-Verify.
Deal said: “What this bill does is … uphold the rule of law, level the playing field for employers and protect the taxpayers.” Well, not true. This bill is unconstitutional and burdens the taxpayers in Georgia in a number of ways. Also, this bill increases the likelihood of civil and human rights abuses and I sure hope the federal government and others interfere to stop this.
