Kan. House Committee Stalls Immigration Bill

KSCB News - March 15, 2011 8:15 am

A Kansas House committee has voted against a
measure that would clamp down on illegal immigration in the state.
The House Judiciary Committee on Monday voted against advancing
the proposal pushed by Rep. Lance Kinzer and Secretary of State
Kris Kobach. The measure would require police to check the legal
status of those they suspect might be in the U.S. illegally.
It also would require governments to run citizenship checks on
new hires and require proof of citizenship for anyone seeking
public aid.
State Rep. Pat Colloton of Leawood has been critical of the
measure, partly because of its possible effect on charities that
don’t comply with the law.
She stated the measure could still resurface,
but that it needs to be more narrowly written.
