Yesterday, Bluestem reported that Steve Drazkowski was preparing to drop an Arizona style bill in the Minnesota House.
I'm embarrassed to see my own legislator, Ron Shimanski, listed as one of five additional House co-authors:
From the clerk's office:
Drazkowski, Shimanski, Dettmer, Scott, Buesgens and Davids introduced:
H. F. 3830, A bill for an act relating to public safety; illegal immigration; requiring law enforcement to enforce federal immigration laws; establishing eligibility criteria for federal and state public benefits; requiring possession of alien identification cards; prohibiting the transporting and smuggling of illegal immigrants; prohibiting illegal immigrants from working or soliciting work in the state; prohibiting the employment of illegal aliens; creating the Minnesota Illegal Immigration Enforcement Team; requiring the attorney general to represent the state against any challenges to this act; amending Minnesota Statutes 2009 Supplement, section 629.34, subdivision 1; proposing coding for new law as Minnesota Statutes, chapter 299P.
The bill was read for the first time and referred to the Committee on Public Safety Policy and Oversight.
More on the bill as the text becomes available.
