Tennessee Senate Passes Initiative to Combat Illegal Immigration

The State Senate has approved an important measure that will make Tennessee a less attractive place to illegal aliens. Senate Bill 1870 by Sen. Jack Johnson (R-Brentwood) passed the Senate on Thursday by an overwhelming majority. The vote was 27-2.

Known as the “Employer Responsibility in Hiring Practices Act”, the bill requires employers to use the Employment Eligibility Verification Basic Pilot Program to ensure that new hires are eligible to legally work in the United States. The program is a web-based system that is operated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

“We are the first state in the nation to require that all employers use the Employment Eligibility Verification Program,” stated Johnson. “State government must be proactive in providing employers the tools they need to comply with federal immigration laws.”

Under the provisions of the bill, there will be no cost to the employers. If the employer does not have internet access, they may contact the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development by telephone, mail, or facsimile to verify the employee’s employment eligibility.
