Default Washington Expected to Bring More Anti-Immigrant Legislation

Upcoming Legislative Session in Washington Expected to Bring More Anti-Immigrant Legislation
The new legislative session in Washington will convene on Wednesday, January 5, 2011, and with it the Republican Congressional majority is expected to debate several issues related to immigration.
There are several legislation initiatives that will test what exactly the 14th amendment means and whether automatic citizenship for children of illegal immigrants should be included. While the ‘anchor baby’ issue is discussed Republican’s are expected to enhance the E-verify program, whereby employers by mandate check whether their employees are in the U.S. legally.
There is also consideration on reducing federal funding to cities that are ‘sanctuary’ cities, i.e. those that welcome immigrants without questioning their legal status.
Democrats and the President have vowed to make comprehensive immigration reform a legislative priority but may have to settle for playing defense as these strict anti-immigrant initiatives play out in the Republican majority congress.
