Mississippi to put stop to illegal immigration

Bill: HB488 (PDF)

Sponsored by Rep. Currie and set to be signed into law by Governor Phil Bryant, HB488 (“The Support our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act of 2012”) follows Arizona SB1070 and similar state-based measures in requiring police to run immigration checks on anyone they arrest. The measure also prohibits illegals from contracting to do business within the state of Mississippi.
