Georgia Bill Takes Aim At Illegal Immigrants In Labor Force

March 2, 2011 by  

Georgia bill takes aim at illegal immigrants in labor forceGeorgia lawmakers have moved one step closer to passing legislation that targets illegal immigration in the workplace.

According to The Associated Press, a House legislative committee passed a bill on Feb. 28 that would crack down on undocumented workers. The law, if approved, would require all employers in Georgia with more than four employees to verify the legal status of new hires. In addition, individuals who attempt to present false documentation when applying for a job would face felony charges under the new mandate.

The media outlet reported that the bill now moves to the House Rules committee, which will decide if and when the entire chamber can vote on the measure. State Representative Matt Ramsey (R-Peachtree City) said that he hopes the vote will take place this week.

Some proponents of immigration reform are concerned that first-term Governor Nathan Deal, a Republican, is backing off his promise to bring an Arizona-style law to Georgia. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Deal has urged lawmakers to be cautious about certain immigration laws because they don't want to put an "undue burden" on employers who would have to abide by a new set of requirements.

Deal's camp claims that the governor is still a strong opponent of illegal immigration, and he's simply urging the legislature to consider the economic repercussions of their reform measures.

"There is no governor in the country with a stronger record on fighting illegal immigration than Governor Nathan Deal. We will put his record up against anybody’s,” Brian Robinson, Deal's spokesman, told the news provider.

    What about the existing employees that are illegal.If they remain, they will only breed and give us a few million anchor babies.We need to check the status of ALL employees and deport,deport, deport!

    • james karalis

      Yes we can use the new DNA equipment from the other story to Trace down all who are not of pure European blood lines and deport them . Yes i could go for that .

      • Bob

        I don’t care what origin they are ILLEGAL is ILLEGAL. We have more from one country because they can walk here. But we have too many from everywhere.

        • james karalis

          But not enough from Europe

            well we can sure tell the one’s from france, they run when they talk about the military service,, probably could’nt hold a rifle for more than five second’s anyway..

          • Bruce D.

            I have had Europeans tell me it is difficult for them to stay here. It is easier if you get residency in Canada. Then you can easily stay in the country. Mexicans do not really care about American laws so they do not pay much attention to them.

        james karalis,you’re a vile and disgusting racist fool.
        Only a racist would presume that because others don’t like illegals it is therefore because of an imaginary “race” issues. In order to propound what you just did you have to be assuming a few things:
        1.) That illegals are not white, a racist stereotype. I’ll bet you’re ASSuming that they’re all messicans, which, BTW is not a “race”. It is a nationality. Only racist would atribute “race” to nationality.
        2.) That those who are opposed to lawbreakers stealing through fraud (as illegals can’t legally earn 1¢ in wages in this country) ARE white, more racial stereotyping
        3.) That #2 doesn’t like #1 simply because of their race as you know in your heart-of-hearts (as if you had one) that white (as if conservative, anti-illegal people are all white) people simply don’t like brown people (as if all illegals are all “brown”); yet MORE racial stereotyping.
        That’s at least 3 racial sterotypes pulled out of your backside. So what does that make you?

    • DENNIS

      .. ON AMERICA’S MOST WANTED, THEY WERE AFTER SOME ILLEGAL THAT HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN ARRESTED FOR DRIVING WITHOUT A LICENSE,,, HOW STUPID IS THAT??? LEGALLY ARRESTED, NO DRIVERS LICENSE, OBVIOUS SOMETHING WAS WRONG THERE,, AND YET, ALLOWED TO GO BACK INTO THE POPULATION TO KILL AND TERRORIZE WITHOUT BEING CHECKED OUT FOR IMMIGRATION STATUS AND DEPORTED,,, AND NOW WE ARE LOOKING FOR HIM ON AMW,,, WHAT THE F,,, IS UP WITH THAT??

    Every Non-representative including obama and holder should be IMPEACHED! for not upholding the oath of office they swore to defend the Constitution! If these clowns were to do their job, this would all be a Moot point!
    Anchors and their criminal parents go, period, and cut the phony tears, you knew you were breaking the law when you crossed the border.

    Next shut down any business hiring illegal labor and confiscate all property belonging to the owner. Property will be sold at auction and the proceeds to pay for the massive deportation. Oh and owners go to jail.
    Got a better idea? Lets hear it!

    • LES

      The people did not use common sense when they voted for Obama. What makes you think they will use common sense now.

      • crystal

        …because they see that the lack of common sense in voting for Obama has had a negative effect on their lives. I hope!!!

      • herman richardson

        It amazes me that before any discussion is over some simple minded person says Obama Did It-my God he must be powerful, if he is to blame for all this sht what do we have the other idiots up there for, he can just screw it up all by himself-get your head out of your backside and look-the complete system is corrupt, and will continue, just keep getting your checks then and sticking your head in the sand. And it will way worse than this

        • Always Right

          “Yes. we can!” He works by presidential decree, ignoring the laws, the courts and the Constitution’s limits on his powers. Look at the drilling moratorium. alreaady trwon out by the courts twice; still ongoing. He could have done the reverse, and ordered drilling into our own oil reserves. He didn’t. Now gas has hitt $4 a gallon and his muslim brothers are getting richer. He could order the Army reserves to the messican border and order all welfare recipients to report to their local welfare offices for a nationality and identity check lest theyy get cut off. He didn’t. He sued Arizona instead for trying to protect their own citizens. He could order inland sweeps by INS. He doesn’t as illegals are tomorrow demoncrapic voters.

    • http://personalliberty.com Lynn

      Right on. I’ve been trying to figure out how to get the American taxpayers to wake up and see that these illegal aliens are not only taking jobs Americans need. They are getting free social services, we the taxpayers pay for. They demand their constitutional rights, after committing a crime and sue on top of it. It has gotten so our constitutional rights only pertain to illegals. Our rights are being systematically taken from us and given to them. WAKE UP AMERICA !!!

      • Robin from Arcadia, IN

        Lynn… I couldn’t agree more. If an illegal is stopped for a tail light out and has no drivers license, deport them! We shouldn’t be waiting until a felony is committed. Nor should they have the same rights! They are not citizens! They are law-breaking aliens!

        • Always Right

          You’re 1/2 way there. Impound their car, seize their other assets as “fruits of a crime” THEN deport them. Everything they have here they’ve obtained illegally. Why should they get to keep any of it? Give them a free backpack (picked up by incarcerated illegals cleaning up southern Az. where the illegals have trashed the desert) a change of clothes (from the same source) and dump their sorry backsides into Nuevo Laredo or Juarez, one of the drug war zones. Good luck, ese’!

      • 45caliber

        Lynn:

        First, see my comment below on how they use our system – as taught them by their government before they come. Then you will know just how far they really are getting away with things – and our government is helping them do it and paying them our tax money for the priviledge.

      • kevin

        FINALLY!!!!! some intellegent people thinking about what ARIZONA has been trying to get past and what we’ve been living for ALONG time. All states should have an SB1070 bill and then lets have Obamaidiot sue the whole freakin’ country, then we can finally kick his dumbass out

    • Tony

      Good call Steve! I agree with a lot of points but I don’t think things will change until every American(those who was born here legally by legal parents and those that were granted citizenship) stand up like citizens in others countries do and go against the policy. It all starts with the morons we put into office to do the job of the people! If candidates can’t or won’t commit to cleaning up America, they need to go with the illegals!

      • herman richardson

        Stand up and get jailed,terrible thing this government, try to gather together 50 + folks together and see what it will get ya!! Just do not get on the train!! You cannot find 50 folks that are willing to band together for the rights of this country, too afraid, or too many will loose their checks.

        • http://?? Joe H.

          Gee, herman, seems I remember last year close to one million people banded together at Glenn Becks gathering in D.C. (as estimated by the police!)

  • Leonard

    Every state should crack down on all illegal people and the ones that employ them a very heavy fine for the employer and a fine and a one way ride back to the country they came from and if they come back again illegally then shot them, lets take back AMERICA and even from this government that sucks to high heavens .TAKE BACK AMERICA GIVE OUR PEOPLE JOBS DOWN SIZE THE GOVERNMENT AND GET RID OFF THE RIFT RAFT THAT IS IN IT NOW
    GOD BLESS AMRERICA

    • Sandra Lee Smith

      Well said, Leonard. Until we make it unprofitable and unsafe to hire the illegals, employers WILL continue to do so. It’s that simple. And the longer any illegal is allowed to remain the harder it is to dislodge him/her. We get all the bleeding hearts complaining about breaking up their families and so on. But the KIDS should go back to wherever with Mom and Dad, and if that nation won’t take them; too bad for the kids, whose PARENTS CHOSE to put them in that position! It may sound heartless, but they are NOT America’s responsibility, because they had NO RIGHT to have been here in the first place, since the parents had no right to be here!

    • 45caliber

      Leonard:

      We are all waiting on a trial in Houston soon. A contractor had an illegal working for him who got picked up and sent back to Mexico. The contractor arranged for the illegal to sneak back across the border and went down to the border to get him and bring him back. A year or so later a cop pulled over the illegal for a traffic violation – and the illegal killed him. The illegal is awaiting a first degree murder trial – and his employer is awaiting a trial for aiding and abetting.

      • Chief

        Sure hope he is found guilty.Illegals come here for a better life understandable Employers hire them for larger profits.Nail the employer problem solved. No jobs No illegals.Stop benefits of all kinds for non citizens reduces reasons for crossing border.I have No problem with immigrants only those who are Illegal.

        • http://?? Joe H.

          Chief,
          Yes, we must stop ALL the give aways!!! Dry up the employment, and stop the welfare and the automatic birthright and they will self deport!!!

  • Infidel

    We all can applaud this Legislation and pass it on to other States!
    The states are the only way to get it done,currently!

    • Larry Owens

      yes , lets hope all 50 states pass legislation to end the problem.

      • newland65

        never happen ,,they only want the job’s that no one else want’s,truck driver’s,carpenters,electrican,tinner’s,postal worker’s, and next they will want a president that is illegal,,oh sorry they already have.

        • 45caliber

          correct.

        • Bob Purinton

          I agree with what you say about illegals taking jobs that no one else wants; it’s your list of jobs I have problems with. You’ve named some pretty high dollar jobs there. I am a $60,000 a year truck driver and I have at least two months a year off. I’m not killing myself at all. Carpenters are very high paid if you like beautiful woodworking. I’m not sure what a tinner is. Maybe I know it as something else back here.
          Maybe from where you set these are low class jobs, I don’t know.
          Mowing lawns or really dirty jobs are, stereotypically, what is associated with illegals. Jobs that have a history of being paid “under the table.”

          • james karalis

            I am a owner operator and i know of wet backs that are driving 18 wheelers here in Houston Texas and some are owner operators and they cut the rates what i charge $435.00 to do they cut it down to $175.00 . we are talking Hazmat loads and most can’t even speak english . they should not even have CDL’s but the state of Texas lets them take the test in spanish

          • http://www.pjsolarz.blogspot.com PJSolarz

            Bob, you missed the point… they are taking all types of jobs. They start as laborers in the construction trades generally taken by kids just out of high school as an “apprentice” and they move into the skilled category. They get the jobs BEFORE the high schoolers because they will accept less than minuimum wage to get the job.
            A lot of normally legal operating companies are forced to hire illegals in order to compete with ones that will hire and exploit the illegal workers.
            All this and we still haven’t touched on the other reasons for closing the borders such as medical costs, prison costs and welfare costs given to them by our less than adequate government bureaucrats.

        • Angry -American

          Jobs that teenagers looked forward too. now its embarrassing to consider working for fastfood joints,mowing lawns, odd jobs that were ment for lower class or first time jobs. You learned basic skills, when you progressed, then you’d find better employment. learned what ya needed , moved on. many don’t move on cause they are the illegals that can’t. they stay right where the goverment expects them to be to Stay Stupid. and they do……I hate Going to fastfood joints, hate mexican resturants, hate any stores that mexicans own, hate stores that have mexicans running them, they can’t fully communicate, thus more frustration. hate mexicans driving our streets, they drive slow, driving better cars than I, better home than I. just being stupid and ignorant is what is the going rate to live in the U.S. A……………..

  • http://aol.com sean murrey

    every state should have this in place.

  • Francis2

    This legislation is 50 years overdue.

    Those of us who object to ILLEGALS must never forget that our Government is a large part of the problem.

    They force taxpayers to provide benefits for them that they have no right to and even allow their children to get citizenship for their children born here.

    Other enemies include the Chamber of Commmerce, the Catholic and other churches, and the puke lawyers @ the ACLU.

    STOP supporting anyone who advocates for ILLEGALS.

    My friend who is Computer programmer has been attempting to LEGALLY get his wife here from India for 14 months. He is following the law and so can everyone else.

    • http://personalliberty.com Lynn

      All that are willing to enter by proper channels are welcome. But those who have come illegally should be sent back with their anchor children. And we should build those border fences promised to us during the Bush administration. Or better yet, place land mines along borders. That would free up manpower on our borders. They would be trying to enter at their own risk. Scattered body parts might make them think twice before trying to ener illegally.

      • 45caliber

        Actually the fences were promised during Reagon’s day. He agreed to pardon those illegals here if the Democrat Congress would build the fence. They agreed – and then renigged on the promise after the amnesty was made.

    • 45caliber

      I know what you mean. My daughter-in-law is Phillipino. It took my son over a year to get her here legally at an expensive cost – and the government won’t allow any of her family to even come here to visit. And they still have the government check periodically to insure they are still married and love each other even after they have an adorable daughter. Further, he barely got her approved before the government tripled the cost of bringing in a legal person.

      • http://?? Joe H.

        45caliber,
        They tripled the cost so they could pay for the illegals that just walk in!!!

    • Bob Purinton

      :) :) :) There are probably some Native Americans thinking that these laws are about 250 years overdue. :) :) :)

      Hey, That would make us all the relatives of illegals.

      • 45caliber

        Actually at first most Native Amricans (Let’s just say “Indians”) didn’t care if the white man came. There was plenty of land and the white man was both a good person to trade with and an excellent person to rob. But they considered a few hundred people to be a large group. It was only later when thousands came – and many more were born – that the Indians became concerned about it.

  • louie

    We are all illegal immigrants. Our ancestors came over here & murdered, raped & took away the Native Americans land with false promises. The great white father told the “Indians” that as long as the grass growed green & the water flowed clean that the land the great white father gave them would be theirs…it was already theirs…then they would take it away from the Indians by killing them. The answer to “illegals” is to issue them a work visa, because they are the only people that are willing to work…especially at meanial jobs…every body else is on some kind of government hand out. I’ve never seen a harder working people than the “illegals” & they never complain…they just work.

    • Teresa

      If you look at it from that prespective than EVERYONE on this planet is an illegal! We are all here from our CREATOR! THIS IS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, fought for and borders suppose to be protected! If you come into this country ILLEGAL or are here ILLEGAL (meaning without legal papers) then you are breaking the law. It has nothing to do with how hard they work! Terrorist work hard too ya know!

      • texastwin827

        Good point, Teresa…thanks! Louie isn’t taking into consideration that the illegals would also be “illegals” in Mexico, given that the Indian was there long before Spain came to colonize it. LOL He takes the approach, that we took part of this country (the border states) from Mexico so it probably should be okay for them to come here, illegally. Perhaps they all should be making plans to return to Spain, instead of invading us!

        Louie, you really should brush up on your World History before trying to make any point about who is and is not illegal.

    • james karalis

      you should be deported with the next bus load of the wets you seem to love more than your own .

    • Jean

      CAN IT LOUIS: I live on the “Trail of Tears”. And yes – I am part Indigenous people and European. Your logic sucks right down to the sewers you crawled out of. Until people like you get the full treatment of sanitation – you will always have a stench. I am tired of toilets that are not flushed – garbage all over rented lawns. Even when they came with green cards – each county paid for their health care and schooling. Add that together with those supposidly low wages with out taxes taken out and you get the same wage that the normal Red Blooded American Citizen would earn. SHIP THEM BACK

    • LES

      They work jobs no one else will take because it is too easy to get welfare. Why work when the politicians give you just as much to sit and watch TV, only thing they want in return is your vote.

    • crystal

      Relearn your history. Native Americans weren’t innocent either. Many time they used the European to help them fight their enemy tribes. There’s a lot of history an enormous amount of people are oblivious to. As far a illegal immigrants go, I’ve seen many that are not hard-working and are not dependable.

      • 45caliber

        I agree. In fact, the Houston crime problem would drop about 50% or more if the illegals were all shipped out. Two years ago or so, a couple of illegals (not Mexican so louie can’t complain) even believed that a home owner had no right to even stop them from robbing a place – even when he had a gun pointed at them. Perhaps some of you will remember Tom Horn.

    • Larry Owens

      you must be an illegal immigrant you sure sound like one.

    • RUDY

      I don’t know where you get your information that “they are the only ones willing to work” you lame brain! I just finished school with a DEGREE to say that I can work to better myself, but I CAN’T GET A JOB. BUT the illegal mexicans that now flood my NEIGHBORHOOD are ALL WORKING, and they all have CASH from the govt, and they all have FOOD STAMPS from the govt, COURTESY of the govt that belongs to ME! I have had jobs to go to MINORITIES, heh, love that word, who were NOT qualified, but got the job because they were filling a QUOTA. I am sick to death of all this, and all the ones who are sucking off this country – and that includes that parasite president and his little gorillas – need to LEAVE NOW!

      • Angry -American

        Well said Rudy: Couldn’t have expressed it better myself! I have seen the Abuse first hand here in San Diego,Ca. being bi-lingual oh boy gravy train..lets teach Americans to en-able them, bring them pastries to eat too, cause if they are treated with inhumane actions, by having to packed into buses or flown in Our planes so they can reform their next re-entry , thru the Hole in the WALL that our so Called Govemerment Built. Congress, GAO, Watchdog for the Federal spending. American Citizens, Voters, shot down by the Supreme Court, majority votes, only to be labled as a Racist, inhumane group of people that only want our laws enforced . Guess I am a Racist.so American whoohoo.

    • Aix Sponsa

      WRONG. My ancestors came over here legally about 1900, and became citizens. Regarding illegals today, they do take jobs from Americans who will work. A man I know hired six illegals to work for him and he claims he saved $3,000 the first month. If they weren’t here, he would have had to hire American workiers to do the work. Our local unemployment here is 16% according to the census. Illegals are taking many jobs here while others cannot support their families.

        Good News: 03/02/11
        Howard Industries today pleaded guilty in federal court to conspiracy to violate immigration laws related to its hiring of illegal immigrants at its Laurel plant, federal officials announced today.

        The company’s transformer manufacturing plant was the site of the largest raids in history resulting in the arrest of nearly 600 people in August 2008.

        Howard Industries agreed to a criminal fine of $2.5 million, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Under normal guidelines a company ordinarily is subject to 1-5 years of probation and a $500,000 fine.

        The company admitted it encouraged and induced illegal immigrants to reside in the United States.

        The company concealed workers’ immigration status and knowingly accepted false documentation even after the federal authorities notified them of irregularities with documents.

        Howard Industries, based in Laurel, is a private firm that produces dozens of products including medical equipment and transformers.

        Jose Humberto González, the company’s former human resources manager, earlier pleaded guilty to similar charges.

          Jean,
          I wonder if the manager was illegal????

    • http://personalliberty.com Lynn

      My family came here in 1900 via Ellis Island. They did what was necessary to become citizens. With jobs getting harder to find, any job is better then no job. Federal assistance should be cut, to force slackers to work. My Bible says if you don’t work, you don’t eat. Work builds character and self-esteem. What so ever you do,do heartily unto the Lord. God will bless your efforts and open doors to better endeavors.

      • Angry -American

        That has been a statement I have tried to impliment to many. many Catholics here are illegals, they should know this , and also the bible states, no matter where you are you must obey the laws of the goverment. to be ashamed is what they should be, just ignorant, and huh speak spanish? Hell no! not my job to teach you or your children english, simple things like crossing the street, just obeying basic laws would help.. disturbing how their fancy cars and extra families living in a sigle house dwelling is ok too! Our Goverment has extended loans , and risky mortgages to these people, and they have NO DAMN Existence, they banked on these losers to fail, bankruptcy should not be allowed to them either. they drive better cars, better homes, on OUR DIME!!!! THANKS A F#*King lot CONGRESS!!!!!

    • texastwin827

      Louie, get over the “we’re all illegals”. For those of us whose families have been here since the late 1600-early 1700′s, that means well over 300 yrs of “legalization”….not to mention those of us whose Scots-Irish ancestors married Indian women…which makes us part Native American, to boot.

      As for all the “menial” jobs they do, that American’s won’t do….Construction is NOT a menial job. It requires that you be skilled, even though it is manual labor. That is just one of the job categories that the illegals have pushed American workers out of…because they can’t support their families on what an illegal will work for. Unlike the illegals (like the 5 living across the street from us) they support their household, alone, instead of having 4-5 men (or families) crowded into one house and sharing the expense (which costs them about 200-300 a mo)

        And don’t forget those of us whose Scots and Scotch/Irish ancestors were sold as slaves–slaves, not indentured servants—by the English king for whom the had fought. King James the 5th of Scotland became King James the 1st of England upon the death of Queen Elizabeth the 1st. He ran through the treasury for his own perverted life style and then sold his own people to the New World. We have all worked hard down through the years, and now suddenly I can’t even afford to go to the dentist while my taxes are paying for the illegals to get any medical they want.

        texastwin827,
        I too, have native American blood in me. My ancestors fought in the revolutionary war, civil war, spanish-American war, WW1, WW2, korea, Viet Nam, and the middle east wars!
        there are illegals here welding, construction workers, carpenters, brick layers, mechanics, electrician, plumbers and not to mention landscapers. That is not to say that they do these jobs well, just that they work cheaper!!

    • Robin from Arcadia, IN

      louie… Try to stay current. I have never murdered an American Indian. If I had an ancestor who did, I don’t know about it. I have never owned a slave. If I had an ancestor who did, I don’t know about it. My parents were born here and so was I. I am an American. I do not fly the flag of any European country and my family only speaks English. Why shouldn’t Americans be upset that illegal aliens are ‘raping’ our country of not only jobs, but hand outs? All states need to get with it and pass laws that make it impossible for companies to hire illegals and when caught the fines are heavy and the illegal is deported.

    • 45caliber

      louie:

      If you bother to check, the “Native” Americans also immigrated here. There are NO groups of anyone who originated here!

      Futher, my family has never owned a slave and as far as I know, never killed an Indian. But they did marry some of them. I’m quarter Indian even though it is in small doses simply because of that. Does it make me more of an American? No. My European ancestors where here for almost two centuries now. Did they come here illegally? No. There were no laws to that affect until we had populated the country to the point where we needed the laws.

      Are you illegal? If so, go back where you came from. From what you are saying, you are illegal.

    • barbm

      you obviously don’t live in a border state. they don’t take jobs we won’t do, they open their own businesses and compete (ha) with americans offering the same services. the guy across the street has a law care business. he is illegal and so are all his employees who work for a lot less than their american counterparts. how can an american compete with that? i have a friend who used to clean houses to supplement her retirement. can’t compete with maids who work for peanuts, so she’s no longer doing it. work hard, my behind. they come, drop a baby asap, get on afdc, food stamps, and medicaid. all of these are programs they’ve never paid into since they don’t pay taxes even if they work. they don’t contribute in any way to their childrens’ free educations, not financially and not physically by helping them. how can they when they make no effort to speak english?

    • Citizen of the Republic of Texas

      It really is getting old hearing about how we murdered and raped the Indians, and how bad all white people are. The Indians did their fair share of murdering and raping, so dont think it was all one sided. And please dont tell me that they were just defending their land from the evil white man. They were killing, murdering and raping their “Indian brothers” from other tribes way before white man got here. Fact is the Spanish (who never seem to be included in the white category) were very brutal to the Indians long before the “white man” first came here. Another fact is the “Europeans” including the Spanish conquered the Indian tribes just the same as the Persians, Greeks, Romans, etc. did when they were expanding their cultures. No doubt the government lied repeatedly to the Indians, but wake up and tell me how it is different from how they lie to those of us who are “legal citizens” everyday.
      The problem as I see it is the “legality” of how the mexicans come into this country. Getting citizenship by being born here as in “anchor babies” should be repealed. Those illegals that are here should be given the choice of paying a very hefty fine for breaking our laws by illegally entering our country. Other laws that they have broken, such as assuming someones identity (identity theft), should have the appropriate penalty imposed on them. If they chose not to pay the fine, or cannot pay the fine, deport them and put them on a list of unwelcome people who will never be allowed to become a US citizen. After they pay the fine, they are deported and cannot re-enter the USA until they follow the proper methods as any other person who wishes to immigrate to our country. If they get caught illegally entering our country again, they go to jail/prison for a set time and upon completion of sentence deported again.
      Additionally, whom ever (individual/business) gives a job to an illegal (better check and confirm that persons legal status), from any country, will be fined an amount which is twice that of the illegal’s fine. Repeat offenders will be subject to jail/prison terms.
      The majority of illegals that I have met and worked with have absolutely no desire to become an American citizen nor do they want to learn English or our culture. We have made the mistake of nearly making Spanish a second language in our country by having almost everything in English or Spanish. If they want to come here and become a citizen, they should want to learn our language just as all the legal immigrants of the past have such as the Europeans, East Indians, Orientals, Africans, etc. Why should we do this for the Mexicans.
      See what their government does to our citizens who enter Mexico illegally… By the way the Mexican government actually encourages and facilitates their people to cross into our country illegally.
      Until the above recommendations are implemented, when these socialistic liberals wish to make their cities into sanctuary cities, go ahead, but do not use tax payer money to support these illegals and do not use taxpayer supported schools, hospitals, and other citizen supported facilities, services and such for the illegals. Let them take the illegals into their own homes and be responsible for all the illegals actions.
      I have little hope for people to stand up for the law because of the ACLU (which should really be the American Communist Litegation Union), President Obamanation and all of his cronies.

  • texastwin827

    One thing I wonder about….what will be the penalty for the companies that hire the illegals, anyway? It’s not just the deportation of the illegals that will eliminate the problem (but it’s a good start) because, as long as employers will hire them, they will continue to come here, including those who’ve been deported.

    Many years ago, I lived in Georgia. Like any other state, Georgia has its fair share of good people. It also has its fair share of kooks. However, when it comes to illegals and doing the right thing and trying to compensate for the insanity that so often comes from Washington, Georgia is absolutely doing the RIGHT thing by tackling this issue.
    Some of the answer is obvious. A fine point usually left out is the idea of treating politicians who support open borders and hordes of illegals (so they can have easy votes in any given election) like illegals. If they don’t want to play by the rules, then deport the scum. How did we get people who think they can’t be replaced?
    Get ‘em, Georgia! I used to hear that the ‘south will rise again.’ If this is how it will happen, I’m all for it! DO IT!

    The term “illegal immigrant” already defines the status of an undocumented worker – illegal – duh! There is no need for further legislation in any state – the only thing there is a need for is enforcing existing laws.

    • Ellen

      You are right. I saw an article recently showing countries’ debt and unemployment. Mexico has 5% unemployment and far less debt than we have. The US taxpayers are not responsible for financially supporting any immigrant – legal or illegal. Our federal government has failed in curtailing illegal immigration. I’m glad so many states are enacting laws to handle this. Maybe Obama may get this message, too. He’s a bit slow on the uptake.

    • 45caliber

      I agree. One of the things I don’t like about the Oblamacare is that we will give free medical care to anyone “visiting” our country. How many people do you know who would like to take advantage of this? All the very best medical care would cost them would be an airplane ticket.

      There is a lot of truth in your statement. 5 years ago I worked for a company and took credit reports. I saw a hispanic family of 7, children 4-19, with 3 BMWs, a nice truck, living in a subsidized 4000 sq ft house worth $300,000 on 2 acres. The father who BARELY spoke any english at all worked for $12.50 hour as a janitor at the local school and mom stayed home. The free money they were getting was giving them a lifestyle that locally required $100,000 income. This is not a unique situation.

      • mom1954

        THESE ARE ONLY A FEW EXAMPLES.

        • 45caliber

          The government still admits to only about 15-20 million of them here. I suspect that there are AT LEAST double that. Even Alaska has some illegals. And the government is doing whatever they can to keep them here.

          I actually wonder if the Welfare Dept. is one reason for this. If they no longer had the illegals here to take care of, they could probably lay off half the Welfare workers. And I bet the Welfare workers know this. They want them here so they won’t lose their jobs.

    • 45caliber

      Here in Texas we have a state legislator who wants to make Spanish the official language of Texas and require all people to learn it to be able to work. He has another bill that requires all supervisors to speak Spanish since he says it isn’t fair to force the illegals to learn English.

      One thing I have learned. A lot of these illegals can’t understand a word you say when you are trying to tell them what to do on the job – but if you mention firing them, they will immediately do what you told them with no further explainations.

      • s c

        If that Texas state legislator is THAT stupid, 45caliber, he needs to be told that his priorities are screwed up. We literally ‘owe’ China. We owe Mexico NOTHING.
        Ergo, if Texans have reasons to learn another language, it should be Chinese (Mandarin, i. e.). China has America by the short and curlies. A state legislator who can find a reason to make ‘Spanish’ the official language needs to be declared mentally incompetent and institutionalized for his own good.
        Doesn’t that airhead know that Americans are working for the Chinese? The new padron is in Beijing. Screw Mexico City.

    Our current government, the DOJ, educational system, etc. are all racist. Freebies, handouts, scholarships and grants are race-based.

    As the Declaration of Independence states – “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

    The administration should remember, the states created the Federal government, not the other way around. The states have the right to dissolve the federal government.

  • texastwin827

    p’d off….Texas is a right to work state…Unions don’t have the power here, that they do in the Northern States….yet, the illegals still push American’s out of the construction jobs. It has nothing to do with the American’s being “lazy”.

    Because there is usually a pack of them living in one house, they can afford to share expenses and work for $10-15 an hour, whereas an American who is supporting his family, by himself, paying his mortgage, etc can not.

    • 45caliber

      Many illegals are buying two sets of ID papers when they come here. They find an empty home and break in to live there. They may have as many as 25 people in one house. They work under one set of papers and draw welfare under the other set. Every six months they change papers. At the end of the year they file two income tax forms, both showing they were on welfare for six months, so they can get all their income taxes back. They live on the welfare (better than they do in Mexico) and sent the rest home to be banked. When they save about $100,000 they go home and retire. Because they are living on welfare, they will take less pay to work a job which puts the Americans out of work. And they pay nothing for rent although they usually will pay to get water and electricity turned on. When they do leave, the house is usually in need of major repairs.

      I had a house in another state that they did this to. The realtor wouldn’t tell me for a long time because she didn’t want me to get the police to force them out. She told me that if I did get the police to make them move, they would come back and total the house. What added insult to injury for me was that I had to pay to have the yard mowed and the trash picked up to keep the city happy since I was the owner.

      • texastwin827

        Actually, 45 in most cases they do not even file a tax return. They manage to avoid having any withholding taxes taken out of their checks by putting a large number of exemptions on their W-9 forms. If you make 10-15 a hour and take 10 dependents, NO W/H tax is ever going to come out, even if you work overtime!

        IF they work where taxes are taken out, there is nothing that can exempt them from Social Security/Medicare taxes but, as a bookkeeper, I can assure you they pay little or no withholding taxes therefore there is no need to file a return.

        • mom1954

      I wonder if any of the managers have ever discovered that Mexicans work hard all day, but actually get very little accomplished. I had a painter caulk & paint all of my windows. He came 3 days from 9 to 2. So, it took him 15 man hours to do the job. A year later, I had moved and needed virtually the same job done. I hired a painter and he sent his Mexican crew of 8 men. They came from 8 to 5 for 5 days. So, it took them 320 man hours to do the same job. And, they did a lousy job and had to come back the next month to repaint half of them. I had the same experience with a landscaping job. I’m completely stumped because they appeared to be working hard all day!

    STOP COMPLAINING. SPEAK UP, BEFORE ITS TOO LATE?

    Anybody disturbed about illegal immigration and the taxes taken from taxpayers to support their health care, education and other welfare programs are fully aware more could be done to stop this travesty? Firstly–building the real–Double layer border fence, as originated by Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) and signed into law as the 2006 Secure Fence Act. The Secure Fence Act of 2006’s goal is to help secure America’s borders to decrease illegal entry, drug trafficking, and security threats by building 700 mile physical barrier as a deterrents complete with concertina razor wire. However, soon after the Democrats and some Republicans cut funding, so it remained one-single-fence. It’s residue a misnomer because it’s never been completed. Lobbyists for corporate welfare, U.S. Chamber of Commerce and a whole range of radical ethnocentrism groups, along with the ACLU (My title The American Communist Lawyers Union) and a whole mob of pro-illegal alien, anti-sovereignty organization purchased our lawmakers.

    Instead we should deploying the National Guard on the border, US federal troops or even recruiting an extra 5000 US Border Patrol agents; it would restrict illegal entry. But Decades of neglect, lack of concern of the legislators playing into the hands of lobbyists for campaign contribution have left America open to the invasion, and ordinary citizens legal residents open to attack by terrorists. For Americans who believe in the “Rule of Law” it is past time, to rescind laws based on “Political Correctness” before it ends in a massacre like the 9/11Trade Center mass murders. We need to permanently implement E-Verify as it is essential of removing illegal workers from being hired by employers. The General Accounting Office offered a thorough analysis of the E-Verify program, with numerous hints as to what employers may view from this program in the future.

    The GAO describes a Driver’s License pilot program that is on the ongoing agenda early this year. The program is seeking to incorporate Driver’s License data into E-Verify, which could be used to substantiate the license number and expiration date when presented in a B listing on the I-9 employment verification document to identify irregularities. However, “State privacy laws (being politically correct again) may interfere with an expansion of this program. This report indicates that the pilot program does—NOT– integrate the use of photographs, so as for now it seems unlikely that E-verify photo-matching will expand to include driver’s licenses, unless US citizens demand it. The report also describes plans to allow persons to “lock” their Social Security number within E-Verify in an effort to reduce ID fraud. Now patriotic Americans who have not been mentally programmed by Liberal Progressives should contact their Representative in Washington at 202-224-3121 or at State level.

    Demand a mandatory E-Verify workers verification program for present workers and new employment using nationwide driver’s licenses. You have so much power with your vote and should use it as leverage, to entice Politicians to fully fund and execute E-Verify, fully. No more voluntary use and should carry penalties of second offense of imprisonment for 5 to 10 years. With first offense by an employer, fines of $25.000 dollars should be imposed and no excuses. REMEMBER THEY ARE STEALING YOUR JOBS. The relatively new secure communities should be federally installed, so every jail or prison can distinguish previous convicted, re-entry illegal aliens and turned over to ICE. The fingerprints of everyone arrested and booked are not only checked against FBI criminal history data-bases, but they are also checked against DHS (Dept of Homeland Security) immigration records. If fingerprints match DHS records, ICE determines if immigration enforcement action is required, taking into consideration the immigration status of the alien, In my book everybody who knowingly enters the United States without permission, should be classed as a felon, not some minor civic infraction.

    ICE reported that as of September 30, 2010, 4,204, 862 fingerprint submissions resulted in 343,829 database matches. As a result of Secure Communities, ICE (Immigration and Customs Service) had removed 64,072 persons. These are very frightening numbers of the types of people entering America, with Americans as victims. Isn’t the Oath of Allegiance specify, specifically for our politicians to defend the United States from both domestic and foreign enemies? Secure Communities should be mandatory, with no opting out?

    The United States is under tremendous financial strain from catering to corporate employers, farmers and agricultural industry. Americans are failing to witness they are paying immeasurable amount of dollars. Last estimate at just the federal level was 113 billion dollars a year, which could go towards paying a massive debt to Communist China. Another 60 billion dollars is transferred by illegal nationals on average of leaving the country to foreign banks. That 1 dollar paid in federal and State taxes by foreign nationals, receives a return in fraudulent tax rebates and other. The future holds massive irreversible overpopulation, eroding infrastructure and federal payouts for education of the offspring of illegal alien workers, known as the 14th Amendment provision. The birthright citizenship for babies may not be amended by the Supreme Court, but the parents can be deported.

    They owe allegiance to another nation and should not be given any preferences; no pardons. Hospitals, schools and other entities should have a right, to report data how many foreign children are currently in the education system and applying for US birth Certificates as birthright babies. It’s unfeasible not to pass on the multitude of information about the expenditures for free health care, education and the corruption and collusion in Washington regarding illegal immigration. Your Questions and answers can be found at NumbersUSA and Judicial Watch. The alarm should go out to every State, which simply remains unresponsive to its legal population and not following the example of Arizona as a foremost policing State. That illegal immigrant in the State of Arizona are leaving in large numbers, looking for another State to settle down and begin applying for food stamps, Medicaid and all freebies to soak your municipal and state treasuries.We reserve the right to halt another amnesty, the Dream Act (another amnesty) Sanctuary Cities and reduce and stop to a trickle any more immigration.

      Demand a mandatory E-Verify workers verification program for present workers and new employment using nationwide driver’s licenses….

      Maybe you do not understand that E-verify will start on a citizenery level… That sounds to me like a liberal theology… Take out the branding irons or micro chip implants to all citizens…

      A very stupid conception not to mention extremely dangerous to force a free people into a totalitarian system of government control much like the DHS and TSA are currently in process of doing with portable DNA analyzers at the airports with the tag of “it’s for your own good”.

      E-verify is nothing less than modern day slavery to a over powered government.. Put simply you will never ever put a chip in me or on me alive anyway!

        Raggs,
        E-verify has been in use for about seven years now and is doing a good job! It is not a chip implant system!

  • John Wudarcki

    Talk about illegals we have a so called president a Socalled President that is not anative born citizen contrary to our constitution
    let’s start at the top and clean house

  • Lisa

    I totally agree,

    My family (rather my grandparents)came here as Jews on the boat and applied the right way for citizenship. My grandpa worked,never took welfare and served in the military.

    My sister in law is from Japan and has been working on her citizen shop for the last two years.

    By darn it, if my family can go about it the right way,so should everybody else.

    If these illegal immigrants do not want to file the paperwork,obey our laws,serve in our military if need be,pay the same taxes etc that the rest of us do then they should not be allowed to have our jobs. And any employer that aids and abets them to break the law should be punished.

    I bet is we cut back all the outsourcing of usa jobs, got rid of all the illegals illegally holding our jobs there would be a job for almost every American citizen here.

    I have no problem with immigration, if its LEGAL!

    If your gonna be here,pay our taxes,obey our laws and serve and love this country like the rest of us do for better or for worst.

    I’m sick of all these folks jumping the border, then when they commit a crime they just jump back. But at the same time they collect our welfare,charity and everything else while legal Americans who paid into the system cannot when they hit a rough patch because of the illegals burdening the system with application. I think every single US state should make it illegal to hold a job here if you do not at least have a Legal work Visa. I also think if you do not have citizenship you should be denied welfare,and I agree with those who voice put an end to anchor babies!

    Once the free ride ends, they will just find another country to do this too. really it boils down to we are being invaded and pillaged of our benefits so badly its crippling or economy.

    Its gotta stop!

  • lisa

    I keep hearing about the ride back.

    why should we pay to drive/fly them back?

    make a better fence/border with a very well guarded exit, simply drive them to the exit,open the door and push them through it and slam it shut behind them. Let them walk back home the exact same way they came. I know that sounds so cruel(and I can only imagine the comments I will get ) but seriously, why should our tax paper money pay for their three night to month processing stay and then the cushy flight or drive back?

    Take their fingerprints,picture and DNA and walk them to the exit and say good bye and slam the door shut . I bet after a few long dangerous treks back to their country it won’t be so attractive to come back.

    and why should illegals already here get fast tracked to citizen ship? My sister in law has been working on her LEGAL citizen paper work for two years, why should someone who lied and snuck their way in illegally get put to the front of the line in front people like my sister in law who actually filed the paperwork and paid to process it and learned our language?

    • Raggs

      Yeah as I figured… You approve of using people as cattle as a method of control via DNA, micro chips etc… WTF… I for one was born here along with many many generations of my family… I will be dead when you or anyone else puts a micro chip in me.

      Suggested reading Lisa… Revelations ( in the bible ).
      So many people like you think that they have all of the answers and you don’t even have a clue.. That is why we are here in the shape we are in.

      • http://?? Joe H.

        Raggs,
        The only Biometrics used in E-verify is photoraphs!! It is done by comparing information on form I-9 to information from SSA and USCIS. The photo may be used if one is on file!! Say the illegal uses the ssan of a dead man. It will be shown that the person is deceased. If they use the ssan of a living working person, it could show that the person lives in Mighigan and the illegal is in Texas and applying or that the man is using the ssan of a woman!! NO CHIP IS INVOLVED!!!

        • Raggs

          If you think so but how would you even apply that without marking every living citizen in this country?

          • http://?? Joe H.

            They have been doing it for about seven years without chipping anybody!!! The only problem is that the progs won’t let them make it permanent and manditory!!

  • AnhydrousBob

    I’m probably gonna go down in flames here, but I want to suggest something.

    Supply and Demand is an Economic Law that you cannot fight.
    Labor is supply and demand like everything else.
    There are several human laws that try to modify the natural law of S&D such as Minimum Wage Laws & Labor Union laws.
    Most of the illegals here are reacting to the Law of S&D in labor
    Also in play is the huge entitlement programs here and the horrid conditions back “home”.
    While we cannot change the conditions at “home” we can remove incentive to coming here by ridding ourselves of laws that are in conflict with S&D mentioned above.
    The problem will for the most part take care of itself.

    Creating more laws to “fix” what we already screwed up is NOT the answer. We only create more problems by putting economic pressure on employers to NOT hire. The government now gets more Nazified by having power to give permission to hire someone. Some kind of structure is being built by this law to control employment that will one day be used against all citizens.
    BAD IDEA to ADD Laws,
    Good IDEA to LET the Free Market decide.

  • jopa

    The above mentioned law has a clause in it that exempts employers of illegals in housekeeping and landscaping.They don’t have to be reported. Basically they are giving them a free welcome to America card.It sounds like another way to beat the system and be here illegally.

  • http://charden@neo.rr.com Charles

    jopa,
    Once in a while, I think you do have some brains.I hope JeffH sees
    your post.I know he would be proud of you.

  • catt11daddy

    Georgia should never depend on outside labor to keep it going, if any thing a labor force of citizens would be more desirable.
    We should also, keep track of elected officials voting for amnesty or softer laws concerning illegals in Georgia so that we can vote their butts out, along with OB in 2012.
    Greed, and liberals are going to be the demise of this country, with the help of La Raza.
