Majority Favor State Laws That Would Shut Down Repeat Offenders Who Hire Illegal Immigrants

Rasmussen Reports:
- 61% of Likely U.S. Voters favor a law in their state that would shut down companies that knowingly and repeatedly hire illegal immigrants.
- 21% oppose such a law, and another 18% are undecided.

- 82% think businesses should be required to use the federal government’s E-Verify system to determine if a potential employee is in the country legally.
- 12% disagree and oppose such a requirement.

- 63% of voters also feel that landlords should be required to check and make sure a potential renter is in the country legally before renting them an apartment.
- 28% do not believe landlords should be required to make such checks.

Separate recent polling shows:
- 66% favor strict government sanctions against employees who hire illegal immigrants
- 51% support sanctions against those who rent or sell property to those who are in this country illegally. This is consistent with surveys for years.

Thanks Matt for stopping by. This is the first time at your web site and I know I will be coming back to read more of the articles. Just read: Illegal Aliens Fed Up With Arizona And Moving To Find 'Respect'. Loved it.

I don't favor shutting down any company. I do, however, favor massive fines (that essentially wipe out any profit from their actions), and jail time for the repeat offenders.
