Georgia Passes Immigration Reform Law

May 19, 2011  | 

Georgia has passed an immigration reform law similar to Arizona's SB 1070 that empowered that state's local law enforcement officers to check the immigration status of criminal suspects they believed were in the country illegally.

To help Georgia's law avoid the same fate as Arizona's law, which has been blocked by a federal judge, Gov. Nathan Deal has said the state is trying to work with the federal government to enforce the nation's immigration laws.

Georgia's "Illegal Immigration Reform and Enforcement Act of 2011" requires employers to use the federal E-Verify system to confirm the legal status of new hires. It also includes provisions on new training for police officers and sheriff's deputies to implement the law, as well as additional funding to counties for confinement of state inmates.

Georgia has the nation's sixth highest population of illegal immigrants.

In 1996, Congress expanded the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) to include violations of federal immigration law.1 While this expansion may not have received much publicity, it could potentially change the face of U.S. immigration law enforcement. Under the new RICO provisions, a violation of certain provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) meets the definition of racketeering activity, also known as a "predicate offense,"2 and an entity that engages in a pattern of racketeering activity for financial gain can be held both criminally and civilly liable.3 Among other things, the INA makes it unlawful to encourage illegal immigration or employ illegal aliens,4 which violations were included as predicate offenses under RICO.
