The 2006 state immigration law was clear that all contractors on all levels for all public works jobs would be required to use E-Verify. An ACCG/GMA amendment introduced to a bill in 2010 would have redefined the definition of labor regulated under that law. Official Capitol archived four minute video from that House committee meeting posted below should provide the beginning of an education for curious readers.
An educated and experienced observation: If everyday, taxpaying, voting citizens could see what ACCG/GMA lobbyists do in the Georgia Capitol regarding illegal immigration during legislative sessions, there would be a march on city and county governments demanding an end to membership in these groups.
Which is something I have tried several times with Cobb County. Without success.
It is tax dollars that are used to pay membership dues to ACCG/GMA which are then used to pay the lobbyists who constantly fight enforcement of Georgia laws put in place to save jobs and benefits and services for legal residents.
