Attorney General in Florida Proposes Law Similar to SB 1070

An Arizona-like law was proposed by Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum on Tuesday.

The legislation by McCollum would require police officers to check the legal status of a suspected undocumented immigrant during a lawful stop.  Under the new legislation, Florida businesses would also be required to use a national registry to ensure any new hires are authorized to work in the United States.

Similar to Arizona’s anti-immigration law, the proposed measure would also require anyone who is not a citizen to carry immigration documentation or face a misdemeanor with a sentence of up to 20 days in jail.
