Immigration Crackdown - Tennessee: Law to punish illegal immigrant hires

Law to punish illegal immigrant hires | The Tennessean | tennessean.com: "Legislation sponsored by Rep. Joe Carr, myself and other legislators calling for employers to use E-Verify to ensure new hires are in the state legally, aims to address these concerns. The bill was signed into law by Gov. Bill Haslam on June 7.

Fifteen states, including five that are adjacent to Tennessee, require the use of E-Verify for public or private employers. Another 25 states are considering similar legislation, and that number may grow because of the U.S. Supreme Court decision last month that had the practical effect of upholding the right of states and local governments to require employers to use E-Verify."
