This is the argument that RidersUSA filed If previous ballot measures
are indicators, the majority of Arizonans believe that the state needs
to "Stop Illegal Hiring." If truth in packaging were applicable
here, this legislation would be called "Employer Amnesty." This
legislation removes two key provisions of the existing Employer Sanction's
Law strong provisions which had the agreement of the legislature and
Governor. The first essential element that is removed is the mandate
that all businesses use the highly effective, user-friendly federal E-Verify
system. E-Verify assures that only legal workers can gain employment
in Arizona and has a provision for correcting errors. "Stop Illegal
Hiring" offers the less-stringent federal guidelines presently in
force as a substitute for E-Verify and relies on documents that have
been easily forged and have been found counterfeited on Phoenix streets.
The second element this proposition removes is the acceptance of anonymous
tips regarding the hiring of illegal workers. Police departments have
long recognized the effectiveness of Silent Witness Programs reporting
crime. Removing these two key provisions from the current law will permit
employers to hire illegal workers and stop vital information regarding
illegal activity from being gathered. Hiring illegal workers takes jobs
away from legal workers, lowers the prevailing wages, and flies in the
face of law and order. Vote NO on PROP 202.
