Ga. considering options on immigration law appeal

ATLANTA — The state of Georgia is considering its options a day after a federal appeals court denied its request to reconsider a ruling on the state's tough law targeting illegal immigration.

The Georgia attorney general's office said Tuesday it hadn't made any decision about its next step.

A three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit in August left in place a lower court injunction that blocks part of Georgia's law making it illegal for someone to knowingly harbor or transport an illegal immigrant during the commission of a crime. The state had asked for a full court rehearing, arguing the panel's decision goes against certain 11th Circuit and U.S. Supreme Court decisions.

The state has 90 days to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, which would decide whether to take the case.

All of Georgia can solve this problem we are having in one simple trick. Don't do business with any company that sends people to work at your house unless they are natural born Americans. You know what I mean! That goes for roofers, contractors, etc. You let them know before you sign a contract that it include a statement that the contract will be voided if you see any such people on your job. The illegal problem will soon go away in Georgia and we wont' need immigration laws that the Feds won't enforce, even though they all took an oath to enforce our laws and our Constitution. Wake up people and do something about it like this. Your government won't do it for you.
