Mississippi and Immigration

"The "Mississippi Employment Protection Act" (S.B. 2988) was signed into law on March 17, 2008. . .Enforcement of the law, and its effectiveness, remains a significant problem. An official at the Mississippi Attorney General's office explained to the Center for Immigration Studies that his office is tasked with investigating complaints that the public may file about potential violations of the law. However, when asked how often such complaints are filed, he responded, 'Rarely.'"
