12. Great article in the Nation last week: Importing illegal immigrants - into Georgia's prisons

"Even as Georgia and Alabama passed harsh new immigration laws last year designed to keep out undocumented immigrants, documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act reveal that politicians from both states were lobbying hard to bring immigrant detainees in."

The hypocrisy of republicans - use ALEC-written state immigration laws to scare away many Hispanics and arrest some others, then import these same people back to the state as prisoners to do the work they were doing before. Quite a racket.
