2013-2014 Session Quiet on Immigration Issues
January 29, 2014
HARRISBURG - In the 2011-12 session of the General Assembly, many bills were introduced that would preempt federal control of immigration.
Many of these bills would have created a paperwork blizzard and legal jeopardy for small businesses from overlapping and conflicting jurisdiction of state and federal enforcement.
The U.S. Constitution reserves immigration control and regulation to the federal government.
PLNA is monitoring legislative activity on this issue in the current General Assembly session and the recent activity at the federal level seems to have quelled the state initiatives.
The 2013-2014 Session of the General Assembly has been quiet on immigration issues.
