Should the States Take on Immigration? - Panel 1Tuesday, July 19, 2011 - 8:30am - 11:00amNational Press Club-First Amendment LoungeWith Congress deadlocked on immigration, state lawmakers across the country continue to take matters into their own hands. So far in 2011, ten states have enacted tough enforcement measures, mandating E-Verify for employers or empowering local police to ask people about their immigration status.Even as states continue to alter the reality on the ground, their right to do so under the Constitution remains unsettled. The recent Supreme Court ruling upholding Arizona's 2007 employer sanctions law expanded the states' right to regulate what employers do, but it's unclear whether the decision also empowers states to use policing and other means to control immigration. And what will happen if Congress overturns state workplace enforcement measures by passing an E-Verify bill of its own?Join the New America Foundation and ImmigrationWorks USA to consider these questions. Panelists include state leaders trying to forge responsible immigration policies and legal scholars who will assess how immigration fits into the broader national debate about federalism -- in healthcare policy, gay marriage and environmental regulation.8:30 am -States: The Improbable Laboratories of Immigration PolicyMichelle BoltonVice President, Public Affairs and Economic DevelopmentGreater Phoenix Chamber of CommerceSen.
