A Wisconsin state Republican legislator has introduced a bill that would mirror some of the tough enforcement measures of Arizona’s controversial Immigration bill.

Rep. Don Pridemore of Hartford’s bill would force local law enforcement to ask those stopped for civil or criminal violations for proof of citizenship or legal Immigration status. Those who fail to provide proper identification must be handed over to a U.S. Immigration or border patrol agency.
Pridemore believes this new language does not promote stereotyping while opponents disagree.

The bill also includes a $500.00 a day fine for those who refuse to comply with the law.
