Imigration politics - Oklahoma: Bill heads to Oklahoma House

Anti-illegal immigration bill heads to Oklahoma House | "A House committee advanced an anti-illegal immigration bill that one legislator opposed to the measure called political window dressing.

House Bill 1446 — the lone anti-illegal measure to remain alive this session — is toned down from earlier versions, which included parts of Arizona’s anti-illegal immigrant law passed last year.

... gone from the bill are provisions that bar children of illegal immigrants from receiving tuition assistance for postsecondary education, allow state agencies to report illegal immigrants who apply for state or federal aid, require employers to verify the immigration status of potential employees, outlaw the practice of illegal immigrants seeking work as an independent contractor and making it a crime to pick up illegal immigrants for the purpose of employing them."
