Georgia Immigration Reform Effective July 1

By T. Mills Fleming, published on June 1, 2011, in Business in Savannah.

When Georgia’s Governor Nathan Deal signed House Bill 87 into law earlier this month, he helped shape the ongoing national debate about immigration reform and affected the way Georgia employers can be prosecuted for knowingly hiring undocumented residents.

The new legislation officially takes effect on July 1 at which time Georgia will become the third state in the U.S. to pass its own immigration reform measures. Although immigration enforcement is typically the responsibility of federal authorities, many states argue that the federal government has not done enough to secure our nation’s borders and to protect America from the financial burden of a seemingly endless sea of illegal immigration. Alabama and South Carolina are considering similar immigration bills that could pass later this year.

Immigration Officials Increase I-9 Audits and Enforcement on Employers

By T. Mills Fleming, published on February 24, 2010, in Business in Savannah.

Immigration law may not be at the forefront of the political landscape, but that doesn’t mean you should be lulled into a false sense of security.

On the contrary, immigration officials lately have begun conducting more Form I-9 audits and have refocused their prosecution on employers rather than illegal immigrants. Employers who do not carefully check their employees’ identity and eligibility status could face up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $1,100 per violation because a false statement on an I-9 form is considered felony perjury.

Undocumented Alien Claims: Finding a Place to Stand

Presented at the ICLE Workers’ Compensation Judges Annual Seminar in Jekyll Island, Georgia, on April 2, 2001, by T. Mills Fleming.

The United States’ immigration policies have changed dramatically over the last 200 years from being a virtual open door to now being a tightly controlled and highly regulated set of rules and regulations. The first law limiting immigration was the Alien Act of 1798 wherein the president was authorized to expel any alien he deemed dangerous. From that time until the later part of the 19th century, Congress passed very little laws restricting immigrant flow to the U.S.

Beginning in 1875 Congress passed several immigration reform measures beginning with a statute providing for the exclusion of convicts and prostitutes. That law was followed by the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 which provided for the exclusion of persons from China – and was not repealed until 1943. Congress passed other laws to exclude cheap foreign labor and in 1888 provided for the deportation of aliens entering in violation of these contract labor laws.
