These states have seen what happen to other states that have allowed it to get out of hand. They are taking action early. Smart move.

Great idea! I hope it flys. It's time we law abiding taxpayers foot the bill. Maybe that'll make the employers think twice about hiring "cheap" labor.

Please explain Arizona's Employer Sanctions Law-------unless ca. 10% of our population being illegal counts as 'low'

Associated Press - January 23, 2008 6:25 PM ET

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Hiring illegal immigrants could put businesses on the hook for costs ranging from education to welfare, under a bill introduced in the Legislature.

The bill (LG1170) brought Wednesday by Senator Tom White of Omaha would provide for the recovery of costs for public education, health care and public assistance programs used by illegal immigrants and their families, spouses or other dependents.

The measure applies to those who "knowingly or recklessly recruited or employed illegal immigrants."

Action could be brought by the attorney general, a political subdivision or a citizen.

Virginia isn't doing a half bad job on passing laws on illegals, but shoot me if this isn't a law we need here in the Old Dominion.

If the beneficiary gets hit by a car and runs up a hospital bill the sponsor can be tracked down and billed.

If a freakin business or corporation "sponsors" an illegal they should also be held responsible for any charges that illegal incurs public or private just like citizens who sponsor immigrants legally.
I agree with that except for the education part. Sponsors do not pay directly for the public education of their immigrant family members (I would be bankrupt if that were the case). But about the insurance I agree. I had to produce at our interview with the Immigration Service that I had medical insurance on my wife and her children. If companies or people hire illegal immigrants, they too should be responsible for the medical care of that employee and his family.

I think more and more states are coming up with different ways to combat the illegal problem.

But the states that have the most illegals won't get the same chances to inact new state laws like these.. because they have too many anchor baby/latino to vote down such a bill.

What good about those states who do not have a large population of those from south of the border.. they CAN get bills like these passed BEFORE they do get over-run by the south-of-the-border votes..

If they didn't hire illegals in the first place enforcement would be mute, now wouldn't it.

Perhaps not...........if the economic security of even California is threatened by the presence of large numbers of illegals------methinks that attitudes would harden real fast.
