Georgia immigration panel under fire

Here in Georgia, we see local conflicts playing out around immigration issues, and those conflicts often mirror the larger immigrations conflicts going on in the political world throughout the country. While some parties want to comply with the President Trump's emphasis on restricting immigration and enforcing immigration laws to their full extent, many others do not see immigration enforcement as an issue that Georgia law enforcement should deal with much at all.

In 2011, in the middle of the Obama administration, Georgia created a panel to investigate complaints of law enforcement agencies failing to properly enforce immigration law, the Immigration Enforcement Review Board. However, over the next six years, the board only received 20 complaints, almost entirely from a single individual who is a well-known opponent of immigration rights.

Now, some parties are calling for the board to disband, while others believe that it needs more power and resources to enforce immigration policies. Those who believe that the board has overstayed its welcome contend that enforcing immigration is simply not a good use of resources, and should be left to the federal government.

If you have questions about this constantly changing area of the law, it is important that you find the answers that you need to keep yourself and your family safe and to keep your rights protected. An experienced defense lawyer can help you understand the rights that you have and the risks that you face, while helping you build a strategy to protect your freedoms in this uncertain and difficult season of political unrest.
