Police in Georgia Prepare to Enforce Show-Me-Your-Papers Law

Police in Georgia are prepared to start enforcing the state’s controversial “show-me-your-papers law” after a federal judge lifted an injunction on it, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The law allows police to check the immigration status of suspects. Anyone believed to be in the country illegally can be detained, the Journal-Constitution reported.

Aimed at pushing illegal immigrants out of the state, critics say the law is unconstitutional and would lead to racial profiling, the Journal-Constitution wrote.

Immigration rights groups said they will be on the lookout for abuse.

“Any type of violations of individuals’ rights — including prolonged detention — is something we will be looking for, documenting and will bring back to court,” Karen Tumlin, a managing attorney for the National Immigration Law Center, told the Journal-Constitution.
