Kansas House Revives Immigration Bill

KSCB News - March 23, 2011 8:11 am

A rarely used motion in the Kansas House is
forcing the chamber to consider reviving a bill to implement
Arizona-style immigration laws.
At the close of Tuesday’s session, Rep. Greg Smith, an Overland
Park Republican, made a motion to pull the bill out of committee
where supporters had been unable to get the measure moving.
It will take 70 of the 125 House members to pull the bill from
committee.
The legislation would require police to check the status of
people they suspect of being in the U.S. illegally.
It also requires governments and their contractors to run
citizenship checks on new hires and require proof of citizenship
for anyone seeking public aid.
