Judge lifts hold on part of Ga. immigration law

ATLANTA -- A federal judge in Atlanta has cleared the way for a section of Georgia's tough law targeting illegal immigration that had been blocked to enter into effect.

U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Thrash on Monday issued an order adopting a judgment on the law by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

A three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit in August ruled that a part of the law that authorizes law enforcement to verify the immigration status of criminal suspects who fail to produce proper identification should be allowed to go into effect. The panel also left in place the district court injunction that blocking part of Georgia's law making it illegal for someone to knowingly harbor or transport an illegal immigrant during the commission of a crime.

Don't they already have Federal and State laws that insist that any or all criminals produce valid ID? In which State don't people in the US not have to produce legal ID. Oh yea, California. HUH.. Thank's Judge, but I don't feel any more protected than before.How long has the law been anything other than that? WTH

Please. This is not going to help at all. It is the reason why the DOJ issued new guidelines for which illegals they will pick up from local police, and who they won't. The Obama admin isn't stupid....they KNEW this part of State laws would pass Constitutional muster, and just found a way around it. Local PDs can detain all the illegals they want, and ICE will refuse to pick them up, and after 48 hours they are released.

So they will just murder more people in California, the ones who supported them.

Big deal, so they will know their status, but can't do much else when they learn their true status. How is that going to deter them

Open Letter to John Gibson,Sean Hannity Jorge Ramos, John Boehner,Luis V. Gutierrez,Lindsey Graham &
Susan Collins

11/9/2012

The gentleman & Lady I've listed above are advocating amnesty for the 12-20 million (wag) illegal aliens in our country . I strongly disagree with their position for the following reasons.

In 1986 President Reagan signed off on a bill granting amnesty to 1 1/2- 2 Million illegal aliens, today I wonder how many thousands more of their family members are here now because of the current Chain Immigration policy in place?

In the past 26 years since President Reagan signed that bill, because of politicians from both parties like Congressman John Boehner , Luis V. Gutierrez ,Senator Lindsey Graham & Susan Collins who have none nothing to help control both of our borders, except to stick their finger in the dike to appease the voters at home and not offend special interest groups ,12-20 Million more illegal aliens (wag) have entered our country and now because the finger caper didn't work, their solution to the problem is amnesty.

The message that people like John Gibson, Sean Hannity , Jorge Ramos, John Boehner , Luis V. Gutierrez,Lindsey Graham & Susan Collins are sending to immigrants around the world is that if you can enter our country illegally without getting caught and hide out for another 26 years, then sooner or later another amnesty will be granted.

Case in point, a large number of American Hispanic voters including Chicago Congressman Luis V Gutierrez & Jorge Ramos have again rally their support for amnesty, and are using their vote to blackmail the Democrats into granting it. My question is what are those Hispanic Americans basing their support on?

My answer is it's based on the fact that a large number of the illegal aliens are also Hispanics which would appear to make their support based on race.( Google some of Chicago Congressman Luis V Gutierrez's & Jorge Ramos comments on the subject).

Now if I say I don't support amnesty because it's wrong then those same people yell I'm a "Racist".

We currently have no control of illegal immigration into our country, yet continue to allow in around 900,000 legal immigrations a year, and now John Gibson,Sean Hannity Jorge Ramos, John Boehner, Luis V. Gutierrez, Lindsey Graham & Susan Collins want to add 12-20 Million illegal aliens (wag) to our population (315 Million), which doesn't include the millions more of their family members that will come here legally under the chain migration policy...

My question to John Gibson, Sean Hannity, Jorge Ramos, John Boehner , Luis V. Gutierrez, Lindsey Graham & Susan Collins that support amnesty is how many more immigrants will our country hold, and how many more legal & illegal ones entering our country will make you happy?

Just because you can walk across our borders or swim / wade across a river doesn't give someone a place at the head of the line here. The line for those people starts inside the border of their own country.

To compound the problem, under the 14 Amendment we have around 300,00 new American Citizens a year who are born in our country to illegal Hispanic women, and yes John, Sean, Jorge, John B., Luis, Lindsey & Susan a lot of them walk or swim/ wade across our borders just to have those new American babies..

My closing comment is granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens is not fair to immigrants waiting in their own country to enter here the legal way and violating our immigration laws should not be rewarded with American Citizenship, it's worth more than that!

The inscription at the base of the Statute of Liberty concludes, "I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" It says nothing about welcoming people who bypass our entry doors by climbing walls, swimming rivers and sneaking under border fences.

this was the best decision possible for enforcement. A ruling the other way would have given Obama the green light to do anything he wanted.

It confirms that the State has rights and the Fed can't take them away.

This was a court of law he was bucking and was told he was wrong. He is going against the LAW OF THE LAND along with the will of the people.

I think this is a very just decision. I believe if ImmiLounge.com was a bigger social network, the immigrant voice would be heard everywhere in America. Being the only social network that connects American immigrants with what they need, it would be a very great tool to help the immigrant nation.

Good to hear this but still - we need to stop letting federal judges decide if state laws are constitutional or not. The states are sovereign and independent and above the federal govt.
The FF would be appalled at how powerful the feds are.

that they would. many years ago even the people of ca voted to cut illegal aliens off all things,feds stepped in and ruled we could not,showing our votes mean very little if it offends a lib anti-American judge.
