Federal lawmakers may not be able to reach a consensus on the country's immigration issues, but increasingly, states are trying to address the topic.
For example, last Friday the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona upheld an Arizona law that gives the state the authority to suspend and revoke business licenses of employers that intentionally or knowingly hire workers who are not authorized to work in the United States.
This particular law had gone into effect on Jan. 1. It now requires employers in the state to verify employment eligibility through E-Verify (formerly called the Basic Pilot Program) that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration administer.
