The "Stop Illegal Hiring" proposition (202) sounds great at first. After all, it makes the penalties more severe for hiring illegals, it gives the money collected in fines to hospitals, and increases the penalties for identity theft. Doesn't this sound like a great proposition that everybody should vote for? It sure does and that's the problem.
As I understand it, proposition 202 actually makes the employer sanctions law virtually unenforcable. It makes is harder to prove that a business knowingly hired an illegal which makes it easier for a business to get away with it. The information I heard from my state representatives and senator is that the law is basically sponsored by low-wage employers that have been profiting from illegal labor and it's purpose is to sound like it's strengthening employer sanctions while in reality, it's hobbling our current law.
I encourage everybody to read this one very carefully before voting on it.
