Even though state lawmakers just passed a major reform bill, the fight over immigration reform does not appear to be over.

Business owners and representatives from the Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights planned to gather at the Capitol on Wednesday morning to call for Gov. Nathan Deal to veto the controversial bill lawmakers passed just before the end of the session.

If signed into law, the measure would would require many Georgia employers to verify the immigration status of new hires through a national database.
