The Georgia Immigration Enforcement Review Board is scheduled to meet Tomorrow (Thursday) noon to 2 p.m. in the Coverdell Legislative Office Building, Room 606, across the street from the Capitol.
The seven members of the board will be sworn in at the public meeting before they elect their chairman and discuss setting up committees and procedures for considering complaints about violations of state immigration laws. There were public cries against the appointment of Phil Kent to the board.
This board is responsible for investigating complaints that city, county and state officials are violating state immigration enforcement laws. It has the power to hold hearings, subpoena documents, adopt regulations and hand out punishment, including fines of up to $5,000. In summary, it has the ability to harass government officials. Let's wait and see what they do.
