    Indiana (2009)


    Indiana "2009" Session


    Mission: Ask the Indiana House of Representatives to pass SB 580

    Message:

    To the Honorable Representative___________:

    I'm writing / calling to ask Representative __________ to pass bill SB 580 a bill that will punish employers who knowingly hire illegal aliens.

    We need the State of Indiana to enforce immigration laws that they refuse to enforce in DC. Indiana must take action and prevent illegal aliens from taking jobs that belong to Americans during times of a high unemployment rate, if you are to protect Americans from the negative impacts of illegal immigration, such as job loss and the associated criminal activity.

    Delph files 'one of the toughest illegal immigration bills in the country'
    Senate Bill 580 to be heard in February

    (STATEHOUSE) Jan. 16, 2009 - Sen. Mike Delph (R-Carmel) today filed what he calls "one of the toughest illegal immigration bills in the country" aimed at punishing those who harbor, transport or employ illegal immigrants in Indiana.
    Delph's Senate Bill 580 includes recommendations from a summer, bipartisan Interim Study Committee on Illegal Immigration and language from Delph's legislation introduced in the 2008 session.

    "After discussing the bill with Senate leadership and colleagues, I am confident this will pass out of the Senate and if enacted make Indiana a leader in illegal immigration reform," Delph said. "We have the opportunity to come together this session saying we no longer tolerate the failure of the federal government to protect our borders and ensure our national security."

    Delph's bill prohibits Indiana employers from knowingly employing illegal immigrants, places violators on three year probation and requires violators to file quarterly reports concerning all new hires to the Indiana Attorney General's office.

    If a second violation within seven years, the employer would receive up to a ten day suspension of their state business license. A third violation within seven years could result in the permanent loss of the business license in Indiana.

    Delph said his legislation includes a "safe harbor" for an employer who verifies the work status of an employee using the E-Verify System, a federal system free to employers who want to confirm citizenship or legal employability. The legislation requires exempt organizations to use the E-Verify system.

    SB 580 also includes several other provisions targeting illegal immigration across Indiana:

    Prohibits sanctuary policies for illegal aliens;
    Increases penalties for operating a vehicle having never received a driver's license;
    Increases penalties for counterfeiting or falsely reproducing a driver's license;
    Requires the Indiana Department of Corrections to check the citizenship or immigration status of a adult and juvenile offenders committed to a correction facility;
    Requires the Indiana Department of Labor to use the SAVE program to determine the immigration statuses for unemployment benefit eligibility and requires initial claims be filed in person using approved documentation by the department;
    Prohibits the employment of illegal immigrants by state agencies and public contractors;
    Increases penalties for distributing counterfeit identifications;
    Increases penalties for someone who knowingly or intentionally transports, conceals, harbors or shields from detection an illegal immigrant for commercial or private financial gain; and
    Makes it illegal to use individual tax identification numbers or consular identifications for purposes other than provided in federal law.
    Delph anticipates SB 580 will be heard by the Senate Committee on Pension and Labor in early February.

    Delph represents portions of Hamilton and Marion counties.

    UPDATE

    Illegal immigration

    The Indiana Senate has approved bill that would revoke the business licenses of companies that repeatedly hire illegal immigrants.

    The "three-strikes" proposal would revoke business license from companies who knowingly hire illegal workers three times. The bill passed 37-13.

    Opponents of the legislation say immigration is a federal issue, and that the bill could cause families to be separated or cost the state millions. Supporters say the federal government is not dealing with the issue, so the state should step in.

    The proposal now heads to the Democrat-led House, where it may struggle. House Speaker Patrick Bauer of South Bend has said he believes immigration is a federal issue and that he prefers the House doesn't deal with the topic this session
