Record number of state laws target illegal immigrants

In what is likely the most interesting news analysis piece in immigration-related news in awhile, the Washington Post reports:
By the time most legislatures adjourned in May, at least 1,100 immigration bills had been submitted by lawmakers, more than double last year's record total, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. This year's total is expected to grow as the issue continues to dominate debate in statehouses still in session.
These bills are all "strongly worded proposals targeting illegal immigrants", which limit their ability to seek employment, find housing, receive government services, and obtain driver's licenses, writes Darryl Fears. He associates the immigration reform impasse on Capitol Hill with the increase in state-level laws and proposals.

Wow, and now the witch hunt begins...

I trust the state and local governments to enforce immigration laws more than I trust the federal government. The state and local governments are closer to the people and have to face our wrath once in a while, meanwhile the feds can hide away in their Beltway Bubble and ignore us completely.

The only "witchunt" I see here is the witchunt for native-born law-abiding tax-paying American citizens who protest a little too loudly about the fleecing we are being subjected to by the Mexican government and the large corporations who are using our welfare systems to subsidize their "cheap" labor.
