Lawmakers gave final approval to legislation intended to crack down on illegal immigration in Georgia. If signed into law by Gov. Deal, HB 87 would require all businesses with more than 10 employees to use the federal government’s E-Verify system to determine the work eligibility of all new hires. Similar to an Arizona law enacted last year, local and state police would be empowered to detain people while their immigration status is checked.
