How's this for hate:

State to list documents immigrants need for benefit application
New Georgia law requires specific documentation.

"Georgia Starting Jan. 1, state and local government agencies must require people who apply for benefits -- such as food stamps, housing assistance and business licenses -- to provide at least one "secure and verifiable" document."

"such documents may include state or federally issued documents or ones recognized by the federal government and that are “verifiable by federal or state law enforcement, intelligence, or homeland security agencies.” Consular matriculation cards or similar ID cards issued by foreign governments will not be accepted regardless of the person’s immigration status.

Government officials who violate this law can face up to 12 months in prison and up to $1,000 in fines."

"Civil and immigrant rights groups have sued in federal court to block this part of the law. They argued it would violate constitutional rights to equal protection and due process. A federal judge dismissed these claims last month."

And what would be considered a "secure and verifiable" document.
