Default Georgia Immigration Bill Would Deny Foreign Passports As Acceptable ID

Lawmakers in Georgia are considering a bill that would remove foreign passports from a list of acceptable identification documents that government agencies can accept.



The bill would also bar undocumented immigrants from the state’s public colleges, universities and technical schools, Fox News Latino noted.

As Law Blog noted, a federal judge blocked parts of the Georgia law last summer.
