Thank goodness someone is going to punish employers who hire illegal immigrants. Without a demand, there is no supply. HB 85, which makes it illegal (i.e. a crime and felony) for an employer to knowingly hire an illegal alien, was sent to Rep. Nolte's committee and was never passed into law. The Republicans control the Senate, the House and the Governor's mansion. What's Nolte's excuse for failure on this issue of great importance to him?
Rep. Nolte gets appointed the chair of a special committee and gets nothing passed. Criminalizing people doing the hiring - law and order, baby - is what the Republicans are all about. Why can't the chairman Nolte get things done? Maybe Clay County folks need a new state representative in the Missouri House.
