Victory in Georgia and Indiana!

Chris ChmielenskiChris Chmielenski, NumbersUSA: While the President was in El Paso calling for a plan that would allow 7 million illegal aliens to keep their jobs, the governors of Georgia and Indiana signed two new laws that will make it much more difficult f or the illegal workers in those states to keep their jobs.Gov. Nathan Deal, who is a former member of the NumbersUSA 5-for-5 Club, signed HB87 on Friday, completing a long and lengthy debate over immigration enforcement in the Peach State.Most provisions of the new bill take effect on July 1, but the mandatory E-Verify requirements for employers with more than 10 employees will be phased in over the next two years.

The other provisions of the bill are similar to those passed last year in Arizona's SB1070. Effective July 1, police officers are empowered to arrest and jail illegal aliens. (Arizona's law required the actions.) The bill also has heavy penalties for anyone who knowingly harbors or transports illegal aliens and requires individuals applying for state welfare benefits to prove that they are legally present.

Also this week, Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels signed Indiana's immigration enforcement bill into law. The new law requires state contractors to use E-Verify and requires private businesses to use E-Verify if they want to deduct employee expenses from their state income taxes.

Progress was also made in Texas this week after the state's House of Representatives passed a bill forbidding the establishment of sanctuary cities. The bill moves to the Senate for its consideration.
Thanks to all of our activists in these three states that helped move this legislation!
