Obama slams Georgia bill on immigration, “We can’t have 50 different immigration laws around the country” – Yes we Can!

“We can’t have 50 different immigration laws around the country” – Yes we Can!

President Obama has weighed in with his opposition to a bill in Georgia that would allow law enforcement to investigate the immigration status of criminal suspects.

The Georgia measure, which GOP Gov. Nathan Deal has said he intends to sign into law, is similar to a controversial Arizona law that the Obama administration opposes.

“It is a mistake for states to try to do this piecemeal. We can’t have 50 different immigration laws around the country. Arizona tried this and a federal court already struck them down,” Obama told WSB-TV in an interview taped Tuesday.
