California Law Bans Mandatory E-Verify

Rate this Entry

California continues to defy the anti-immigrant trends taking hold in legislatures in the South. Following up on passage of the California DREAM Act, the state has just banned counties and municipalities from mandating E-Verify participation by employers. A number of towns in politically conservative parts of the state have been passing such ordinances over the past few years. The bill was signed by Democratic Governor Jerry Brown and supported by the California Chamber of Commerce as well as the California Farm Bureau Federation.

    Not a single vote against this by a Democrat (which is the norm). California Democrats have been passing all kinds of laws which facilitate unlawful presence (and repealing those which deter it). Such bills used to get vetoed but now Brown is signing them all. The welcome mat is certainly out but fewer are taking the state up on their encouragement to illegally reside there. In fact, from 2005 to 2009, 870,000 people left California. Arizona was the most popular destination, followed by Texas.

    California tends to be a immigrant friendly state but in reality they are illegal immigrant friendly state. My friend has applied for H-1B extension and CA has refused to extend his license even though his application was pending with USCIS. On the contrary AZ or NC still extend drivers licenses for duration of 1 month if your application is pending.

    i dont think CA is as immigrant friendly to legal immigrants as it is shown in the news.

    It is simply the other side of the coin Jack, you cheer for AZ, GA and AL on the enactment of the anti agenda. It's a free for all in the absence of a federal standard or reform the states do as they are allowed to push the envelope.

    Senate's most liberal and most conservative (tea party dude) team up to offer Residence Visas to foreign buyers of US houses:

    The Home buyer bill has the Senate Leader, Harry Reid's support:

    The Chinese will likely comprise the majority of home buyers. Mike Lee's Senate future is a question mark. It will also answer the question whether the tea party folks are anti immigrant or anti illegal immigrant. In other words are they plain racists or are they just anti-law breaking. If they are racists like the folks in Evergreen (everwhite?) or Bergen Park Colorado Mike Lee will be in very serious trouble as these folks would not want Chinese moving into their neighborhoods or Chinese kinds attending the schools with their kids. Too bad, we have to wait until 2016 to find out!

    One of the flws of this visa is that iot does not allow people to work and they have to be here for at least 6 months out of the year or at least check in every 6 months. That means the only folks with means could afford the visa. The point of the visa is not so much to be for immigration but to help the housing market, that leaves a lot of people out thus not sure how much relief can housing get from this...If you do not get people to pay taxes and spend into our economy the benefit seems marginal.

    If they are here 6 months in a year they would be taxed on their worldwide income. Remember, these will be wealthy people with sources of income overseas, the USA will get to tax that income. Again, being wealthy people thay would spend significant amounts of money into the economy. They will also being Sales & Real Estate Taxes.

    The fact that it is attracting Can support means that it has a decent chance of clearing the Senate. The Nevada & Florida housing market have been hard hit. Those Senators will likely be on-board, that is 3 more Can votes.

    I guess in FL they forgot that small legal detail of equal protection under the law....

    I do not disagree that is a positive step however is being sold as a solution for housing not sure how much as most of these individuals would be investors. Given that these are mostly wealthy individuals they probably already have a visa. But all and all good news all I am saying is that is not what they are selling out to be....
