Arizona to penalize business owners who hire illegals

Well, here is a real step forward, for a change. Bush’s immigration and justice people have staged sweeps of illegals, but have not enforced the laws on hiring.

Gov. Janet Napolitano on Monday signed sweeping legislation against employers of undocumented workers, targeting the state’s market for illegal labor with what she called “the most aggressive action in the country.”

The penalty for violators: the suspension of a business license on the first violation and permanent revocation on a second, amounting to a death sentence for repeat offenders.

It will be interesting to see how long it takes for other states to follow suit. I am not thinking many states want to be the last safe haven.
