Coalition writes to GOP lawmakers on immigration

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - A coalition of groups in Georgia is urging the state's members of Congress to vote against any immigration reform bill that includes a path to legalization for people living in the country illegally.

The groups, which call themselves the Georgia Immigration Enforcement Coalition, say they sent a letter signed by more than 50 groups to Georgia's Republican U.S. House delegation Monday.

The letter asks the lawmakers to take a pledge to oppose and vote against any legislation that includes the legalization of people in the country illegally. The organizers of the effort are also vowing to support primary candidates against Republicans who vote for a plan that includes legalization.

The coalition includes tea party groups from around the state as well as other conservative groups.
