Georgia acted on immigration today. From the broad outlines of the Reuters article, this bill accomplishes at least two things: 1- Highlights the inability of the federal government to act on what is essentially a federal issue, 2- Advances the discussion in a constructive manner.

Remember — they’re not just here to do jobs for which there is a demand (in the overall labor market… Americans will do them, but probably not at those wages), they’re here for the services they don’t get at home. Until they’re documented and working within the law, they’re not paying taxes. And that situation taxes the rest of us.
