PHOENIX - According to local sources, SB 1070 goes to the Senate Committee of the Whole for a vote today.  The bill currently includes the E-Verify program, creation of a misdemeanor offense for anyone who employs undocumented workers and arbitrary terry stops to evaluate citizenship.  There are provisions in the bill which call for the siezure of private property; such as impounding a car for transporting an undocumented immigrant. 

Those opposed to the bill are organizing their defense against a federal or national ID card and gun reporting requirements embedded in the bill.  Ernest Hancock plans to give an update on teh legislation's status on Liberty Radio available this afternoon.

Looks like the bill passed the committee on a 5-2 vote and now goes to the full Senate.


I like the idea of moving on when you're ready! Good corporations are performance based, shouldn't schools allow students to be too?

What do you think?
