Georgia, other states tackle immigration piecemeal !!
Now laws expanded the power of cops what do you think it is right or wrong??
Five states this year followed Arizona's lead by passing laws that expanded the powers of local police officers to enforce immigration laws. And although each of the states has tried different approaches, they are seeing the same results.
Federal judges in Indiana, Utah and Georgia have blocked recently passed laws in those states.
The National Immigration Law Center and the American Civil Liberties Union are also planning lawsuits against recently signed immigration laws in Alabama and South Carolina.
If the laws continue suffering the same fate as Arizona's law of being blocked in federal courts, the rulings could halt an increasingly fractured immigration system as each state struggles to find its own plan absent a comprehensive federal solution.
