Further, because Section 7 of the Georgia's HB 87, dealing with harboring and trafficking, was NOT part of the Supreme Court case in Arizona, we remain confident that the Court of Appeals will uphold the District Court and strike down this section of HB 87. The bottom line? This is a terrific decision, a HUGE blow to the anti-immigration movement and the likes of Kris Kobach and his ilk who wrote the Arizona law and helped Rep. Matt Ramsey write Georgia's HB 87.
The United States has established that §§3, 5(C), and 6of S. B. 1070 are preempted. It was improper, however, toenjoin §2(B) before the state courts had an opportunity toconstrue it and without some showing that enforcement ofthe provision in fact conflicts with federal immigration lawand its objectives.
