SC Senate passes heavy fines for hiring illegal immigrants


COLUMBIA, SC (AP) - State senators have passed a bill that would impose fines up to $10,000 for employers who knowingly hire an illegal immigrant.

Senators gave the bill a key second reading Wednesday evening with an agreement to give it final approval Thursday. It will then move back to the House.

Senate President Pro Tem Glenn McConnell calls the bill the toughest against illegal immigration in the country.

Employers who fail to have proper paperwork on hand could face a fine of up to $100 for each illegal worker.

Employers knowingly breaking the law would face up to a $2,500 fine for each illegal immigrant on the payroll for a first offense. The fine can be as much as $5,000 for each worker on a second offense and $10,000 each for a third offense.
