Iowa Independent: GOP leader: Democratic immigration bill targets non-unionized employers

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

Iowa business owners who repeatedly employ illegal aliens would face civil penalties of up to $10,000 and up to a year in jail under legislation being proposed by a coalition of Democrats in the Iowa House of Representatives. House File 2026 would lead to the creation of the law that prohibits employers from employing any persons in the United States illegally. The employer would be exempt from penalties if they seek verification of a worker's citizenship status through the Department of Homeland Security's verification system.
