Florida immigration law fight to heat up again in 2012
Earlier in his term, Governor Scott signed in the act that required state agencies and companies with contracts with state agencies to use the federal E-Verify program to check the employment eligibility of their workers during the hiring process.
The larger Federal debate regarding immigration policy in the United States is ongoing with three immigration bills being discussed this session: a movement for a mandatory federal E-Verify requirement, indefinite detention for those illegally in the United States and a measure called, HALT (“Hinder the Administration’s Legalization Temptation”).
