06/11 - Immigration Reform in Louisiana (Re-broadcast)

How big a problem is illegal immigration in our state and should we draft legislation similar to Arizona’s controversial bill?

Six bills have already been filed this legislative session to address verification of U.S. citizenship for Louisiana workers as well as create penalties for employers and “persons not lawfully present in the United States.” So, how big a problem is illegal immigration in our state and should we draft legislation similar to Arizona’s controversial bill? Watch an encore broadcast of “Immigration Reform in Louisiana” on Louisiana Public Square, Wednesday, June 22nd at 7 p.m. on LPB HD. (This program originally aired October 27th 2010.)
