    ALIPAC: States Approved Record Number Of Immigration Reform

    States Approved Record Number Of Immigration Reform Laws In 2010

    March 8, 2011 by Personal Liberty News Desk

    States approved record number of immigration reform laws in 2010A total of 346 laws and resolutions related to immigration were approved by State lawmakers in 2010, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

    William Gheen, the president and spokesman of Americans for Legal Immigration, told ABC News that the increasing trend of stricter immigration laws will continue over the next several years.

    "We are going to pass more immigration enforcement legislation in the states in 2011 than any year prior. And what we don't get done in 2011 we will get done in 2012," Gheen told the news provider.

    Although the Democratic-led Federal government has been slow to act on immigration reform, many States have taken matters into their own hands. Following the passage of Arizona Senate Bill 1070, which is considered the toughest anti-immigration law in decades, many other States have followed suit.

    Sweeping victories for Republicans in last year's midterm elections have sparked a renewed focus on immigration policies. Gheen told the media outlet that Arizona-style laws have been proposed in approximately 24 other States. In Texas, more than 100 immigration-related bills are pending.

    The Pew Hispanic Center reported that about 1.6 million illegal immigrants live in Texas, according to The Associated Press. Although the national total of undocumented residents dropped from 12 million to 11.1 million between 2007 and 2009, the immigrant population increased in Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana.

    North Carolina Following Arizona's Lead Against Undocumented Immigrants

    Charlotte – A bill inspired by Arizona's law SB1070 was presented on Thursday in the Senate in North Carolina, a state where the immigrant community doubled in numbers over the past decade.

    Bill SB179 would make it a crime for a person not carry their immigration documents, while insisting that law enforcement personnel will not consider the race, skin color or nationality of individuals in enforcing the law.

    Irene Godinez, who works as a state legislative lobbyist for the Charlotte-based Latin American Coalition, says that the "show me your papers" bill opens the door for the deportation of more undocumented immigrants.

    "North Carolina has a large number of deportation programs like 287(g) and Secure Communities. Approving SB179 would facilitate the expulsion of many people," she told Efe on Thursday.

    With regard to the chances of the bill passing in the legislature, Godinez said that although debate on it has barely begun, the state Senate is controlled by a Republican majority that wants to take a hard line against undocumented immigrants.
