It will be a sad end of the year for many pro immigration activists and immigrants (legal and illegal) in the State of Arizona. The new Employer sanctions legislation is the talk of the state for many months now. The state’s new employer-sanctions law, which takes effect January 1, will cause some serious trouble to employers and immigrants. The voter-approved legislation is an attempt to lessen the economic incentive for illegal immigrants in Arizona, and to spread fear among employers thinking of hiring illegal workers.
It will be interesting to see how this law will affect the State of Arizona, as I am sure many other state will learn and implement similar legislation in the next few years. My only hope is that the conclusion will be that a comprehensive immigration reform is needed, rather than an enforcement law, this will benefit employers and the workers trying to get jobs.
