Last week Mr. Kim, Mr Blanco, Mr. Xiong and Mr. Ramos all met with Governor Deal’s office regarding opposition to proposed legislation SB-7, HB-72, HB-87 and SB-40. These bills send the wrong message to the local and global business community in Georgia. Additionally, these bills do not solve or further the federal immigration reform movement but rather disproportionately impact legal immigrants and business owners. Other business community leaders have expressed similar views.
