Legislative Day 10 - 2011

Details of a tough illegal immigration bill were announced today.
Sen. Jack Murphy's Legislation will increase punishments for state contractors who don't use the federal E–Verify program to ensure legal status of their employees.

The bill also authorizes law enforcement officials to ask for immigration documents from a person who has been stopped for the probable cause of a crime.

Sen. Murphy's legislation joins Rep. Matt Ramsey's immigration bill in toughening E–Verify provisions.Both measures are the outcome of a special committee on immigration reform.

We also go in-depth on set with Senator Nan Orrock about the current Illegal Immigration.
