Sonny Perdue on Immigration

Republican GA Governor

 


No welfare or other services for illegals

We must ensure that individuals receiving taxpayer-funded services are US and Georgia citizens. Illegal immigrants’ first stop when they cross the border should not be the welfare line. Georgians cannot carry the burden of individuals who are receiving state services and not contributing to the system.Last December, Sonny instructed the state agency which administers our taxpayer-funded healthcare program to institute a new income and citizenship verification requirement for applicants.

Check immigration status after minor offenses

Legislative Summary: When any person charged with a felony or with driving under the influence is confined in a county or municipal jail, a reasonable effort shall be made to determine the nationality of the person so confined.

Registration of Immigration Assistance Act: To establish and enforce standards of ethics in the profession of immigration assistance by private individuals who are not licensed attorneys.

OnTheIssues Interpretation: Immigrants are allowed to get legal help, but those helping must register, and may offer only limited help. They must declare in writing that they are not an attorney, and cannot give legal advice. The purpose is to make the process harder for illegal immigrants to get legal help, and hence to increase deportations.

Legislative Outcome: Passed Senate 39-16-0 on March 27 vote #1037; passed House 119-49-8 on March 28 vote #1076; signed by Gov. Perdue April 17.
