I ran across this petition at [livejournal.com profile] lipsum 's lj... I encourage everyone to read and sign. Georgia (my stupid state) is on the verge of implementing a copy of Arizona's anti-immigrant law. 

Stand Up for Dignity and Veto Anti-Immigrant Laws in Georgia

I sincerely hope that if implemented, the Supreme Court will strike down the law, as well as Arizona's. This immigration lawyer's blog has some pretty detailed arguments about the unconstitutionality of HB 87.

I believe it's immoral to criminalize undocumented immigrants when we live in a country that provides massive incentives for businesses to send jobs and investment money across borders. The border should be exactly as porous for human beings as it is for capital. Enshrining one while demonizing the other is just sick.
