NEW BILL TO CRACK DOWN ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION

Wisconsin State Representative Donald Pridemore introduced a bill aimed at cracking down on illegal immigration in the state.

Should the bill become law, law enforcement officers would have to ask individuals for proof of citizenship (or proof of who you are by providing a driver’s license) when pulled over for a traffic violation or other offense.

If proof of citizenship cannot be provided, the individual is arrested and given 48 hours to prove his or her legal status before being turned over to federal immigration authorities.

Opponents of the bill argue that it will lead to racial profiling and victims of crime being less likely to alert authorities.  Cities and counties refusing to comply with the bill would be fined $500 a day.
