Are Georgia Employers Reserving Jobs for U.S. Citizens?
Yes, Georgia has one of the toughest and most sensible illegal aliens laws in the country and, if it were enforced, illegal aliens would leave. But the law is not enforced, is ignored and misused consistently by employers in private businesses and public (government) agencies.
The fact that the state hired illegal aliens was, stunningly, revealed after an illegal alien was injured in a traffic accident, while working with a crew on Georgia highways. Again, illegal aliens were evident after a local public school announced an upcoming green card check. Result: janitors and cafeteria workers didn’t show up for work the next day.
At least three counties in Georgia screen jail and prison inmates to identify illegal aliens and report them to Homeland Security for deportation. But, many aliens could be detected before they commit crimes and go to jail, if private employers and government agencies would use the federal Employment Eligibility Verification System (E-Verify) to screen job applicants.
