Missouri Enacts New Immigration Law
Last week, Missouri Governor Matt Blunt signed a bill that his office called "some of the strongest legislation in the country to fight illegal immigration."

According to the governor's office, House Bill 1549 bars the state from issuing Missouri driver's licenses to illegal immigrants and imposes criminal penalties to those who assist illegal immigrants in obtaining driver's licenses. Among other provisions, the legislation also requires verification of legal employment status of every public employee; allows for cancellation of state contracts for contractors if they hire illegal immigrants; and enacts provisions to punish bad acting employers who hire illegal immigrants, according to the press release.

The text of the legislation, which becomes effective January 1, 2009, can be found here.
