Opponents of Georgia’s new anti-illegal immigration law say they delivered a petition with 10,000 signatures to Gov. Nathan Deal’s office Wednesday, asking him to call a special legislative session to scrap the measure, also called House Bill 87.
The Coalition to Rescind HB 87 says the law is damaging the state’s economy and harming immigrant families.
There was no immediate comment from the governor’s office Wednesday. But proponents of the law say the measure will help prevent illegal immigrants from straining the state’s taxpayer-funded public schools, hospitals and jails.
