Empowering the people is always good

From the AP via the Tucson Citizen:

A frustrated Arizona lawmaker says he will push a proposal next year to give American workers the right to sue companies that fire them while keeping illegal immigrants on the payroll. Violators would have their state business licenses suspended.

A similar bill is working its way through the Oklahoma legislature.

"This will allow local people to take action and not just rely on the federal government," said Republican Rep. Russell Pearce of Arizona, who planned to file the proposal this year but said he will wait until 2006.

I like laws that empower citizens to handle things themselves. But expect a lot of opposition from those that feel dissuading illegal immigration is “mean” (ignoring the hardship it places on the families that remain unemployed due to their jobs being given to illegals)
