Mexico and 10 other countries have joined the legal fight against Georgia's tough new immigration law, warning that the strict crackdown could jeopardize close ties between the U.S. and its Latin American neighbors.
Georgia's law, known as HB 87, would allow law enforcement to check the immigration status of a suspect who cannot provide identification and empowers them to turn over anyone found to be in the country illegally to federal authorities. It also adds new penalties for those convicted of harboring illegal immigrants and presenting false documents when applying for a job.

Then they wouldn't have to deal with the feds, and there would be no justification for a lawsuit.
This sounds like a phony attempt to go after illegals, when the employers are the real crooks.
Oh yeah, when 90% of your employees can't speak English, the claim that the employer didn't know is ridiculous. That is the lamest excuse to justify a crime that exists. You can always claim ignorance.
