Looks like South Carolina is going to follow in the footsteps of Arizona with a law punishing employers of undocumented immigrants.
S.C. General Assembly rushing to change immigration laws for businesses - Breaking News - TheState.com: "Proposed changes to South Carolina’s immigration laws would require all businesses to use the federal E-verify program to check workers’ legal status.
The changes also would allow the S.C. Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation to suspend or revoke businesses licenses, tax licenses and any business documents filed at the S.C. Secretary of State’s office. But the labor department would no longer be allowed to impose fines on businesses that violate the law.
The changes are being considered in the 11th hour of the legislative session, and must be approved by the Senate and House. ...
The changes come on the heels of a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision that upheld a similar law in Arizona. However, the opinion written by Chief Justice John Roberts left some gray areas that could impact South Carolina’s law."
