Georgia Budget and Policy Institute is deeply disappointed by the passage of HB 1105 by the state senate. HB 1105 effectively turns the entire state into a 287(g) jurisdiction, mandating deeper local cooperation with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. HB 1105 is a state mandate without any supportive funding. Based on prior data, it is expensive and strips scarce resources from local governments, replacing local discretion with state-level decision making to the detriment of local communities. The bill is also likely to perpetuate the separation of immigrant families and expand the state’s system of carceral control and caging of people of color. The bill is likely to move back briefly to the state house next week, and there is still time to influence the outcome.
