    ATLANTA, April 15 (UPI) -- The Georgia Assembly ended its session by passing an immigration bill modeled on the controversial Arizona law.

    Gov. Nathan Deal, who made immigration a campaign issue last year, told Te Atlanta Journal-Constitution Friday he is likely to sign HB87 after reviewing it.

    "To try and craft legislation that is within the parameters of what a state can do without overstepping its bounds is difficult," Deal said. "And I commend the General Assembly for trying to put a product together that they felt like met that, and from what I have seen, I believe it does meet that."

    It's about time.
