Immigration News

South Carolina enacts tough new anti-illegal immigration law.

As of July 1st, all businesses in SC must now check their new hires’ legal status and fire any existing workers known to be in the country illegally. The law requires employers to check workers’ legality through a federal database or by hiring only workers who hold a driver’s license from South Carolina or other approved state. Otherwise they could face fines of up to $1,000 per worker, and a business repeatedly found to knowingly employ an illegal worker could be closed for months.
