    The version of illegal immigration legislation passed by the House on Thursday is tougher on businesses that hire illegal immigrations than the measure passed last week by the Senate, calling for fines of up to $25,000 per day for infractions.

    The measure the House overwhelmingly stamped also removed controversial language from the Senate bill that county and city representatives said could open up mayors, aldermen, police officers and other officials to lawsuits brought by citizens who felt they weren’t doing enough to uphold the act.

    Any fines collected from businesses would be returned to local municipalities to help in their efforts to enforce the act, such as with the hiring of additional law enforcement officers, said Rep. Bobby Moak, who presented the bill on the House floor.

    Senate Bill 2179 passed the House with little discussion after a brief committee hearing Thursday afternoon. The Senate debated the bill for about four hours last week.

    The chambers would have to reconcile their differences before it can be sent to the governor, who would have to sign it before the act becomes law.

    The measure passed 80-36.

    Immigration bill altered; Costs for verifying shifted to employers

    House members kicked the "immigration football" across the Capitol's third floor Thursday by amending Senate legislation so employers of illegal immigrants, not local governments, will now bear the financial costs in determining immigration status.

    Senators approved immigration legislation on Jan. 18 based on the Arizona law that empowers law enforcement officers to require drivers pulled over for traffic offenses prove they are in the country legally.

    That raised the ire of local government officials, who said they would be saddled with the additional cost of investigating and housing illegal immigrants until they are taken into federal custody.

    "There were some who were distressed at what they saw coming out of the Senate," said Rep. Bobby Moak, D-Bogue Chitto, a member of the Judiciary A Committee.

    "We didn't think that local first responders were the problem in the legislation that came over from the Senate, so we addressed what we've been hearing from concerned Mississippians."

    House members amended the Senate legislation, on a 77-40 vote, by placing the financial burden on all employers who hire illegal aliens.
