This bill shouldn’t be passed, it’s not right,” protester Evelene Cortez said.Protesters are urging Gov. Nathan Deal to veto the bill.HB 87 will allow law enforcement to question the immigration status of some suspects, and require most business owners to use E-Verify to confirm their workers status.Rep. Matt Ramsey, the bill’s sponsor said, it’s designed to stop illegals from coming to Georgia for work.Friday members of Atlanta’s business community told CBS Atlanta they oppose the bill because they’re afraid it could lead to canceled conventions and big business losses.”Most of us support the economy.
