Today HB87 passeds out of the Georgia House of Representatives 113-56. The multi-state plan conceived of by the far-right group Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) is well underway with bills similiar to Arizona’s anti-immigrant, anti-human right SB 1070. If you would like to read more about how these bills are not merely “copy cat” actions but a strategy that has been in the works for some time now I recommend reading the well researched blog posts by the Applied Research Center’s Seth Wessler and Katrina Hurtado. They have kept mapping the bills and laws as they pop up in more and more states.
If you are in one of these states and would like to have this graphic adapted to apply to your state please send an email to Melanie HERE
