    Kentucky Focus Campaign

    Kentucky

    Mission: Encourage House to pass HB 95 that is "modeled after a bill that passed in Arizona and penalizes businesses that employ illegal immigrants" and is currently before the Judicary Committee. HB304 a bill that will permit local and state law enforcement agencies to enter into agreements with the federal government for local enforcement of immigration and customs law also require employers to use the federal e-Verify system, currently before the House Judicary Committee.

    Task: Call and E-mail all members of the House and Judiciary Committee

    Message Example (craft your own)

    Subject line: HB 95 Enployment of illegal immigrants

    To the Honorable Representative____________,

    I'm writing / calling to ask Representative ____ to please support HB95 and HB304 . We need the State of Kentucky to enforce immigration laws they refuse to enforce in DC. Please approve the bill, which is similar to the Arizona Law that will "penalizes businesses that employ illegal immigrants", requires the use of the federal e-Verify program, and establishes a state enforcement program. Kentucky must take action with companies that unscrupulously hire illegal aliens, if we are to protect Americans from the negative impacts of crimes like illegal immigration and all of the associated criminal activity.

    Lost this one. The horse industry is just too powerful here. I wish we could pressure ICE to show up for the Derby and at horse farms here.

    From the Lexington Herald -Leader:

    House Judiciary Chair Kathy Stein, D-Lexington, announced in her committee today that she will not call for a vote on an immigration crackdown bill.

    The move effectively kills the measure for this legislative session.

    Stein said she gave much thought to her decision that the bill is "unneeded" and believes that concerns it raises are being addressed by the federal government.

    House Bill 304, sponsored by Rep. Bob Damon, D-Nicholasville, would prosecute illegal immigrants with false personal documents on felony identity theft charges, strip their employers of business licenses and require local governments, jails and prosecutors to enforce federal immigration law.

    FRANKFORT — With her voice choking several times, House Judiciary Chair Kathy Stein took pains to inform her committee Friday why she decided it will not vote on a controversial bill to crack down on illegal immigrants in Kentucky and the businesses that employ them.
