A Mini-McCarthy Panel to Enforce Georgia Immigration Law?

Rate this Entry

Yikes! From Bloomberg:


Georgia mayors, county commissioners and even business-license clerks may face $5,000 fines from a panel of state-sanctioned volunteers empowered to investigate complaints about compliance with a new immigration law.


The board will be able to subpoena witnesses and strip funding from public bodies it finds have violated the law and levy fines against governments and individuals.


The first-of-its-kind Immigration Enforcement Review Board is part of a law that took effect July 1, making Georgia one of six states that have taken immigration enforcement duties into their own hands. To date, the law has provoked a federal lawsuit, a court injunction and a shortage of fruit and vegetable pickers in Georgia's harvest season. The enforcement board's job is to keep government officials in line.


"This is a radical privatization of government power," said Charles Kuck, a lawyer who is part of a legal team challenging the law. "There was no evidence presented, not even anecdotal evidence, that there was a problem that needed to be solved."
