On Tuesday, Republican candidate for governor Nathan Deal declared he would implement Arizona-style immigration laws in Georgia.
But signs that all Republicans aren’t on board are popping up. This from Politico.com:
Florida Senate candidate Marco Rubio said in a statement Tuesday that he fears the law puts the Arizona’s police force in an “incredibly difficult position.”
“It could also unreasonably single out people who are here legally, including many American citizens,” Rubio said.
“Throughout American history and throughout this administration we have seen that when government is given an inch it takes a mile.”
Rubio criticism was quickly followed up by a fellow Floridian, former Gov. Jeb Bush. In an interview … Bush said the law is not “the proper approach.”
“I think it creates unintended consequences,” he said. “It’s difficult for me to imagine how you’re going to enforce this law. It places a significant burden on local law enforcement and you have civil liberties issues that are significant as well.”
