Ga. Dems hold public hearing on immigration

ATLANTA (AP) -- House Democrats held a public hearing to gather testimony about effects of Georgia's tough new law targeting illegal immigration.

A string of people said at the hearing Thursday that the law has harmed them or people they know.

Democrats have filed a bill that would essentially repeal that law. Another Democratic proposal aims to give small businesses more time before they must use a federal database meant to keep illegal immigrants from the workforce.

Republicans have a healthy majority in both chambers of the Legislature and leaders have said they won't support changes that weaken the law.

Rep. Rashad Taylor, an Atlanta Democrat, said it's important to keep fighting the law even if the Republican leadership is unlikely to allow action on their bills.

Ahhh, what part of "Illegal" do they not understand???? Those very politicians should be put under arrest for attempt to break a law.

This is exactly why Democrats have no power in the State of Georgia any longer. They hold stupidity above their heads for all the world to see. I guess Democrats like Rashad Taylor have figured out that legal Americans will no longer vote for them, so they need to get illegals to vote.
