Panel Backs Ban on Labor Centers

Elvia Díaz, Arizona Republic (Phoenix), Mar. 2

Advancing a strategy to discourage illegal immigration, a legislative panel has recommended banning government-sponsored day-labor centers in Arizona.

The measure is considered a blow to cities and towns struggling with undocumented immigrants crowding major thoroughfares, seeking work on jobs ranging from construction to roofing to landscaping.

The legislation, House Bill 2592, prohibits cities, towns and counties from building or maintaining a work center that facilitates the hiring of undocumented immigrants.

“It’s not right for taxpayers’ money to be used to foster illegal-alien hiring halls,” said Republican Rep. Colette Rosati, of Scottsdale, who sponsored the legislation.
