More good news from the front lines in the battle against illegal immigration. A U.S. appeals court has upheld the “Legal Arizona Workers Act,” a new Arizona law that allows the state to revoke the license of any business that employs an illegal alien. Arizona is now free to begin enforcing this new law.
This may clear the way for other states who were considering similar legislation. Please contact your state legislators and encourage them to propose and vote for such laws for your states!
A U.S. appeals court on Wednesday upheld an Arizona law that targets employers who hire illegal immigrants by revoking their licenses to do business in the state.
Arizona attorney general Terry Goddard welcomed the ruling, and said his office would “continue to defend the statute should there be an appeal to the highest court.”
Arizona passed the employer sanctions law after a federal immigration overhaul died in the U.S. Congress in June 2007.
