What is the difference in the Arizona immigration law and the law tittled 287g that we have in Georgia?
1 Answer from Attorneys
The law known as "287g" is a more properly known as Section 287(g) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. It is a federal law that authorizes the Federal Government to enter into agreements with state and local law enforcement agencies, permitting designated officers to perform immigration law enforcement functions.
The Arizona immigration law (usually referred to as "Arizona SB 1070") is a state law passed by Arizona. Some argue that Arizona's law is preempted by federal law.
Accordingly, 287g is a federal law, while the Arizona statute is a state law.
