Arizona business are desperate to retain illegal employees

A new law prohibiting Arizona employers from knowingly employing illegal aliens is set to take effect on January 1, and businesses are desperate to find a way to block it. The new law would make employer violators subject to business license suspensions for first offenses and revocations for second offenses.

The business groups appealed a judge's ruling that threw out their initial legal challenge, while in a second lawsuit, a hearing is scheduled for the judge to hear a request to put the law on hold temporarily while considering a longer injunction blocking the law. The appeal was made to the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in the first of two lawsuits the groups filed to block the law.

The business groups' notice of appeal does not specify grounds for the appeal. The judge had ruled that the lawsuit needed to be filed against the county attorneys who would have prime responsibility for enforcing the law rather than state officials in general.


  1. If they block this i'm going to jump out the window! Maybe I will land on an illegal, God knows the chances are good since we have so many.

  2. Hello; George W. is giving this month, 7 drug dealers a pardon, but not the 2 border guards that got 10 & 11 years for shooting a drug dealer with 750 # of marijuana. He got a free pass to testify against the 2 border guards by Judge Johnny Sutton, buddy of G.W.'s. In the mean time the drug dealer brought more drugs across the border. His says his mother is in poor health & needed to make money to take care of her. The drug dealer is in jail again, but still no pardon by G.W. In 1896? we paid Mexico $17 million for the states along the border. Does it mean if you have a sick person to take care of it's ok to sell drugs? I will not vote on anybody regardless of their party that wants to give guest-worker amnesty or any other amnesty. We all need to wake up & see what's happening to our country & to the middle class. Merry Christmas to all.


Please be civil. Thank you.
