You Don't Speak for Georgia
Top Five Reason Jim Marshall doesn't speak for Georgia on illegal immigration

1)In 2003, Jim Marshall voted for Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House. (House Roll Call Vote #2, 01/07/2003)

2)In 2005, Jim Marshall voted for Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House. (House Roll Call Vote #2, 01/04/2005)

3)Voted to allow illegal immigrants to receive food stamp benefits. (House Roll Call Vote 367, 07/13/04)

4)Voted to allow local governments to forbid their police officers from reporting information on illegal immigrants to the federal government. (House Roll Call Vote 341, 07/8/04)

5)Rep. Marshall voted to extend temporary protected status (TPS) to hundreds of thousands of immigrants in the United States even though the reason for the initial TPS is no longer a concern. TPS was given to residents of Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua following natural disasters in 1998 and 2001. The countries have since rebuilt and recovered from the devastating effects of the hurricanes and earthquakes, yet their citizens residing in the United States continue to enjoy TPS and do not have to apply for legal residency as other would-be immigrants from around the world are required to do.
