Look at the Premption clause. Individual States, municipalities, local government cannot enforce their laws already passed and it stops any other State to pass laws to stop illegal immigrants getting employment. Arizona's, Georgia's, Tennessee's current laws would become illegal.

What does this bill do to make us feel that the Federal government will enforce illegal immigration laws already on the books? Do you think this bill will make the Federal government do their job? It will not!

This is a horrible bill, provides amnesty to the illegal immmigrants here. The Chamber of Commerce hands are all over this bill.

You are correct Joanne. I emailed Numbers USA with that info and hopefully that will quit supporting the bill until amnesty and the premptive clause is gone. If the federal government was doing their job we wouldn't need any of these laws. Lazy bums!!!
