Bills being heard Monday from Russell Pearce

Summary of Bills to be heard Monday February 18th 1:30 pm


HB2012 out of state driver licenses; identification purposes (Nichols, Pearce) - Support

This bill prohibits Arizona from accepting the Driver License of ANY state that does not require "proof of legal presence" in the U.S. In other words any state that issues licenses to illegal aliens, which could be terrorist or who knows. Accepting foreign documents is accepting unverifiable ID which makes that states ID no better than accepting a Matricular Card, which according to the FBI is one of the greatest threats to Homeland Security.

HB2412 criminal trespass; day laborers (Kavanagh,Harper) - Support

Goes after Day Laborers and allows law enforcement to enforce this law as a trespass violation if they are soliciting on property other than a sidewalk.


HB2791 Arizona temporary worker program; provisions (Konopnicki et al) - Oppose

This is a back door attempt to continue to hire foreign workers instead of U.S. workers. It will suppress wages and continue to allow foreign workers to take jobs from Americans. George Borjas from Harvard University reported that these folks currently cost American workers $1,4 billion annually in lower wages due to this current environment and this would continue this policy (except try to legitimize it).

HCM 2012 Arizona temporary worker program (Konopnicki et al) - Oppose

This is a POST Card to Washington asking permission to implement HB2791 as it would take federal legislation. There kind of immigration reform is to continue to import foreign workers and continue business as usual. This is a back door attempt to continue to hire foreign workers instead of U.S. workers. It will suppress wages and continue to allow foreign workers to take jobs from Americans. George Borjas from Harvard University reported that these folks currently cost American workers $1,4 billion annually in lower wages due to this current environment and this would continue this policy (except try to legitimize it).


SB1408 prohibited possessors; undocumented aliens (Verschoor) - Support

2. Expands the definition of prohibited possessor to include a person who is an undocumented or nonimmigrant alien, who is traveling with or without documentation in this state for business, pleasure or study while maintaining a foreign residence abroad.
