The Republican-led General Assembly passed legislation Saturday that will require cities, counties and businesses to check the immigration status of new hires.
The House voted 67-45 to require employers and local governments to use the federal government’s E-Verify records system to prevent illegal immigrants from landing jobs. The legislation makes exceptions for companies that employ fewer than 25 workers or use seasonal workers.
Gov. Beverly Perdue will decide whether to accept the measure or veto it.
