Illegal immigration bill passes House

Georgia's much-debated law aiming to crack down on illegal immigrants -- and those who hire and harbor them -- passed the Georgia House on Thursday.

House Bill 87 passed by a vote of 113-56. The bill was sponsored by Rep. Matt Ramsey, R-Peachtree City.

According to the Associated Press, Ramsey feels the most important part of the bill is the requirement that Georgia employers use the federal E-Verify system to make sure that new hires are eligible to work in the United States.
