Georgia Security and Immigration Compliance Act (Georgia SB 529)

The 2006 drafted act requires the use of a Federal program (SAVE) to administer public benefits using a verification system.  However, not all Georgia agencies that administer public benefits use the system.

Currently, only Georgia public employers and their contractors “are required” to use the Federal E-Verify system (verification of legal immigration status).  Georgia House Bill HB1259 (Georgia Employer and Worker Protection Act) proposed in 2010 requires all employers to use the Federal E-Verify system to obtain or renew a business license.

Why am I writing this in a real estate blog – simple!

Jobs for Americans and legal immigrants can help strengthen our country and our real estate markets.

Does your State Representative and Senator support both SB529 and HB1259?
