New laws wll be proposed in Nevada to make illegal life more difficult

Holy cow! In just six months Nevada’s Legislature will convene again, and, as Mark Twain once said, no one will be safe.

Incline’s Assemblyman Ty Cobb, R-Reno, and his fellow assemblyman, Bob Beers, R-Henderson, frustrated with the federal government’s inaction on illegal immigration, are teaming up to offer a couple of proposed Nevada laws that would make it more difficult for undocumented aliens to live and work in Nevada. Cobb’s proposal would prohibit unlawful residents from voting, getting driver licenses and most kinds of state assistance (including Millennium scholarships); Beers’ bill would punish employers who knowingly hire illegal immigrants.
I'm in favor of any law that makes it more difficult for illegals to find a financial incentive to come to this country. And since apparently the federal government lacks the cojones to seriously address the issue, it appears to be up to the states to take on the responsibility. ... By the way, calling an illegal immigrant an undocumented alien is like calling a drug dealer an undocument pharmacist.

Truth?

IMHO: looking at the tanking economy------better than 50% that the laws will pass.
