FTA:
But that's where the vetting ends, confirms Kelly Farr and Lisa Durden of the secretary of state's office. The law says nothing about making sure the documents are genuine. "We really don't have a way to do that," says Durden.

State officials say the new document requirements haven't uncovered any undocumented immigrants.

Instead, officials say they hope the process itself may discourage people in the country illegally from trying to get licenses in the first place.


My god. It's full of assholes.

weird that you think getting the slaves back for them is the solution here.

Oh, shut up. I ran into a real life version of you recently in a store - a former neighbor. We ended up on the same aisle and he was looking at me so I said "Hi xx, how are you?" He began the conversation with a bizarre comment stating "Most American women now-a-days have five or six abortions." I tried to politely turn the conversation to talk about cookies. He started yelling at me in the store. He started ranting about immigrants and Hispanics, dehumanizing an entire category of people, saying "They're not like you and me ..."

This man knows that my own family includes an internationally adopted child. He knows that many of the very people he was ranting about are our friends. We still visit them. The kids still go to each others' birthday parties.

Yes, he's "working class", if you overlook the fact that he hasn't worked in over 20 years. He was fired and per long-time neighbors that have known him longer than I have, he never looked for another job. He immediately assumed the mantle of the ultimate victim. He can't find a job because women work for less pay, affirmative action gives jobs to blacks, and now because of Hispanics.

He doesn't care about the working class and neither do you. All either of you care about is feeling sorry for yourselves, hating, and scapegoating others.

you don't know me at all kid.
I've never once said an unkind word about illegal immigrants. never. not in my entire f*cking life. I live in a state filled with these people, and
most of them are much harder working and much kinder and obviously more intelligent than you'll ever be.
the only remedy I've ever proscribed for their removal is to jail their employers (not them) who induce them to come here so they don't have to pay living wage to americans and whose unnaturally low wages then force externalities on the rest of society in the form of subsidies for their families and the subsidies of the working class they displace. I'm simply telling the truth, that increasing supply with cheaper substitute labor reduces the demand that everyone else can charge for their labor in this country, and this is a huge reason why the median wage for males has decreased insignificantly for males in this country since 1965 when immigration was significantly liberalized.
you call me a hate filled scapegoating bigot just like your friend for simply daring to tell the truth about decreasing wages and labor supply in the united states. go f*ck yourself you piece of garbage.

Step 1 - Cut staff in departments by 40%
Step 2 - Quadruple their workload
Step 3 - Blame ineffective government agency for failing to enforce poorly designed law

What this really looks like is a move by Georgia against two distinct groups of people whose beliefs are counter to the GOP belief system, government workers and medical workers. Those who embrace medicine embrace Science, which is everything the GOP is now against. Of course government workers are and always will be people of terrible character, freeloaders and incompetents the lot of them.

A privatized licensing agency could do an even worse job slightly faster and at only double the cost.

FTA:

Even D.A. King, an outspoken activist and critic of illegal immigration who helped write the law, agrees. King says the law protects Georgia jobs, but even he believes some parts of the legislation need fixing. A bill that addressed some of the law's shortcomings died in the last legislative session.

"I am not only outraged, but sincerely disappointed and puzzled that our repair legislation was not allowed a vote," King says.

Step 1) Require medical professionals to submit asinine and burdensome paperwork to get re-licensed under the guise of protecting the state from illegal immigrant doctors and nurses (as there are so many of those).

Step 2) Lay off the people who actually process the asinine and burdensome paperwork (because people who work for the state are part of the 47% that isn't deserving of governmental representation and pubic sector unions are evil, etc., etc.).

Step 3) ????

Step 4) Profit.

Man, I can't wait to hear the screaming. If Georgia lets them work without being legally licensed to do so, insurers will reject any and all billing from them because of liability concerns. If Georgia refuses to let them work because they're not legally licensed, their healthcare system is going to suffer large for it.

Short-sighted, hot-button legislation meant to pander to voters is not how you govern, Georgia. Especially when you couple it with severe budget cuts to state governmental staff already working with antiquated processes.

Heckuva job, Georgia.
