Hire An Immigrant You Could Loose Your Job

  Pennsylvanians who knowingly hire illegal immigrants would lose their professional license under a bill that passed out of a State House committee Tuesday.  Supporters said the proposed law would help prevent people who are in the United States illegally from holding jobs that legal residents could otherwise have. Democrats said they worried the bill could lead to large institutions going out of business because of a single hire, and that rules and penalties haven't been fully spelled out. The bill passed a committee, and is now on its way to the House.
