Teri Simmons Quoted in NRI Pulse

Arnall Golden Gregory Partner Teri A. Simmons is quoted in the May 2011 edition of the NRI Pulse, a newspaper devoted to Atlanta’s South Asian population. Titled “Community Joins Debate Over GA Immigration Reform Bill,” the article provides a close look at HB 87, a bill that requires businesses with more than 10 employees to verify their visa status using the E-Verify system to determine whether they may legally work in the United States. Opponents of the bill worry that HB 87 will increase racial and community profiling. In the article, Ms. Simmons says that the bill might affect the number of immigrant clients who might be prevented the ease of doing business in Georgia.
