The governor of Georgia has signed a law cracking down on illegal immigration.

Demonstrators gathered outside Gov. Nathan Deal's office protesting the measure.

It lets law enforcement officers question certain suspects in criminal investigations about their immigration status. Illegal immigrants convicted of using fake identification to get jobs could face 15 years in prison.

Supporters say the measure protects taxpayers, while critics say it could lead to racial profiling.

    Racial profiling is just good common sense.We know the two groups who are destroying this nation with their monumental violent crime rates. Wish we could get rid of them all.
