Georgia is only following the law. If your legal in this state then you have nothing to worry about if your not legal then leave.

There are so many things to love about my county - the fact I can breathe the air without someone blowing cigarette smoke on me, and the fact our county tries to actually uphold the law and so something about the illegal situation.

I am way over the illegals telling us what we have to do and can't do. If you don't like it then march your happy self back to your country and we'll pick our own fruit or invent a machine that will.

I'm tired of being the silent majority while my country gets taken over by a bunch of illegals.

The ACLU wants to fight individual states that adopt the same law that has existed at the federal level of decades.

Why don't they go directly to the feds and fight them?

At the federal level anyone can be asked about their immigration status without any justification at all.

Evidently, you don't understand anything at all about this issue and would rather simply burn the U.S. Constitution to make it easier for to not have think to hard.

Additionally, what is a "level"? Please explain to me the difference between the state "level" and the federal "level". I can do it one simple paragraph, I'd like you to explain it to me in your words, make sure if you get too wind baggy to use some citiations as well. The fact is, you probably don't even have a clue, your type typically doesn't.

You're county provides you with fresh air, wow, you must live in dunce county. In my state, a person can still smoke on a public sidewalk and if you don't like it you have the freedom to cross the freaking street and use the other sidewalk. I love how you two faced hypocrite dunces brag about freedom and laws against freedom in the same sentence.

Not really, states do not have the authority to enforce federal immigration law. In fact, states do not have the authority to enforce any federal laws.

I have the freedom to breathe fresh air without some rude selfish person sucking on a cancer stick and blowing their rancid smoke at me. I don't have to cross the street b/c like I said in my county it's illegal to breathe your exhaled toxins in the air..you have to do it in the privacy of your own home - sucks to be you.

As for illegals. If your legal you don't care about profiling, if your illegal then you do.

Cheers to Gwinnett County!!!

The new Chair of the House Judiciary Committee Lamar Smith disagrees.

"As the co-author of the legislation enacting the 287g program, I can attest that it was created to let state and local law-enforcement officials help enforce all immigration laws, not a select few. It only makes sense to remove illegal immigrants from the streets before they commit more serious crimes." - Rep. Lamar Smith, July 20, 2009.

You have the freedom to cross the street, just like you said, you also have the right to shut up.

The 287g program only allows locals to turn suspected illegals over to the feds, it doesn't allow states to ENFORCE OR ENACT federal law.
