Georgia state capitolGeorgia’s new law targeting illegal aliens is working — even before it goes into effect on July 1. Illegal aliens are already scampering out of the state, just as the law's proponents expected would happen. But leftists have filed a lawsuit in federal court to stop implementation of the new law.

Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley signed the state’s tough immigration law on Thursday, inviting an immediate challenge from the radical left, including the American Civil Liberties Union and Southern Poverty Law Center.

Alabama has joined Arizona in the legal battle against illegal aliens. Last week, the state passed a law that, legislators hope, will send illegal aliens scampering for the state's borders and from there out of the country. Thus is the Yellowhammer state likely now in the crosshairs of the Obama Administration, which sued Arizona after it approved its crackdown on border jumpers.

Greg AbbottItem: In a speech in El Paso, Texas, on May 10, President Obama mocked those who have resisted his policies on illegal immigration and border security. “They wanted a fence. Well, the fence … is now basically complete,” said the President. He predicted, as noted in the official White House transcript, that opponents would probably now say we “need to quadruple the Border Patrol. Or they’ll want a higher fence. Maybe they’ll need a moat. (Laughter.) Maybe they want alligators in the moat. (Laughter.) They’ll never be satisfied.” Moreover, said Obama, “despite a lot of breathless reports” about crime, “El Paso and other cities and towns along this border are consistently among the safest in the nation.”

Colorado is suffering a massive increase in the number of foreigners in its jails, and many of the miscreants are illegal aliens.
