NC Senate guts immigration bill


In a shocking turn of events, the Senate’s Commerce Committee today completely gutted HB 36, better known as the Immigration or E-Verify Bill (hat tip to Randy’s Right!). The bill that the House passed required public and private employers with more than 24 employees to use E-Verify to confirm an employees’ immigration status before hiring them. The bill that passed out of the Senate Commerce Committee today removed all language pertaining to private employers. The toothless bill now heads to the Senate floor where it may be voted as soon as tonight.
