The Court of Appeals of Georgia has denied a GCO memberâ€™s motion for reconsideration of its decision that probate judges, though required to issue GFLs within 60 days of application, may wait indefinitely to issue GFLs. BUT ... In the Senate Immigration Bill currently being debated completion of background checks are not required for probationary legal status of illegal immigrants. Says Alabama's Sen. Jeff Sessions: THEREFORE ... No legal status will be given to any potential GFL holder until all appropriate background checks are complete. But legal status will be given to any illegal alien even if all appropriate background checks are not complete.
