Penalizing Employers Hiring Illegal Immigrants is Constitutional

Korea Daily , Posted: Sep 24, 2008

The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Sep. 17 upheld the constitutionality of an Arizona law that requires employers to verify the employment status of their workers and penalizes those who knowingly hire illegal aliens, reports the Korea Daily. Affirming the decision of a U.S. District Court, the three-judge panel held that the Legal Arizona Workers Act is not preempted by federal immigration law and does not violate due process. The Arizona law authorizes the state to suspend or revoke the business licenses of employers who knowingly hire "unauthorized aliens," as defined under federal law, and mandates that employers utilize an Internet-based system known as E-Verify, established by the U.S. Department of Justice, to confirm a new employee's eligibility for employment. Various business and civil rights organizations brought suit against the state and its leadership to challenging the legality of the law, which was enacted last year and went into effect in January.
