National Employment Law Project updates report on state laws affecting immigrant workers

"Many of the anti-immigrant proposals, both at the federal and state level, can be summarized as measures intended to make a broad range of entities enforcers of immigration law. This is clearly the case with measures to allow local police to enforce immigration law, but is true to a lesser degree for measures to restrict access to drivers’ licenses, and limits on enforcement and remedies available to the undocumented under labor laws. In this climate, there are many areas in which state and local governments can act to afford better access to work-related benefits and better protections under existing state labor and labor-related laws."
