Authorities face a decision on how strictly to enforce parts of the law.

Toombs County Sheriff Alvie Lee Kight Jr. supports tightening border security to stanch the flow of illegal immigrants. Also, Sheriff Kight said, the country must address the illegal immigrants already here. He didn’t know how to solve the problem, but he thinks the country could ease the barriers to bringing in legal workers.

“We shouldn’t have illegals here,” he said. “But I also think it should be a workable solution. We need them here to work, but we want them to be legal.”
