Arizona Employers Saction Law Goes Before Federal Appeals Court

The Arizona law that suspends or revokes the business license of any employer who "knowingly" hires undocumented workers has\d survived a legal challenge before a federal district court. That sparked a couple of copy-cat laws in other immigrant unfriendly states. Now opponents of the law will bring it before the 9th Federal Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday this week. Whether it survives or goes down, it's certainly to go before the Supreme Court. A favorable decision on Thursday will probably quicken the pace of copy-cat laws. (See Arizona Republic article.)
