Mississippi Politicians Plan to Adopt AZ-style Law
Mississippi’s Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant and state Rep. Becky Currie, both republicans, are pushing for an immigration-enforcement law similar to Arizona’s. The legislative push will allow police officers to check the status of people they believe to be undocumented immigrants. The fate of the bill will be determined during the three-month session that starts in January. The state has already passed a law requiring all employers to use E-Verify to check the immigration status of new employees.
