Louisiana Steps Off Anti-Immigration Plank

Rate this Entry

Louisiana's GOP Governor Bobby Jindal has just signed two immigration laws, one of which is probably unconstitutional.

HB 342 requires all contractors seeking to do business with the state use E-Verify. That's something we've been seeing in other states and is likely constitutional under the Whiting Supreme Court case. HB 646 allows the state to fine employers hiring unauthorized workers. The use of E-Verify would be a defense. The problem with this law is that the only sanction states can make on employers is the suspension or revocation of a business license. Fines are not allowed under IRCA. So get ready to pay, Louisiana taxpayers, for a lawsuit is in your future.
