Letter I sent to Georgia Representatives Urging Removal of Anti-Immigrant Provisions from SB 160

The original legislation proposed in both the House and Senate fixed some of the problems in the anti-immigrant bill HB 87 which Governor Deal signed into law.
Amendments to the legislation would “make it a crime for state and local government officials to accept any foreign passport as proof of identification unless the passport is accompanied by proof of legal immigration status” and would prevent lawfully present immigrants granted deferred action and those granted reprieve from natural disasters and war from obtaining driving licenses.
I urge you to reject these amendments and pass the legislation as originally proposed to fix the problem of professional licensing which HB 87 created.
In the case of Speaker Ralston, who is not my representative, I urge you to use your influence to fix SB 160.
Sincerely,
Ayman Fadel
