News From Long Island WINS 7/15/08

It may be summer and time for vacations, but at Long Island WINS, we are busy working on practical immigration solutions for Long Island. After a barrage of legislation aimed at the business and immigrant communities in the Suffolk County Legislature these last six months, the leg has adjourned for vacation. Here is a quick recap of the last sessions’ immigration bills:

  • IR1105: Introduced by Legislator Brian Beedenbender, 1105 requires all contractors in Suffolk County to certify that their employees are here legally. The bill was passed.
  • IR1479: Introduced by Legislator Jon Cooper, 1479 authorized a pilot program to mandate contractors with a county contracts to use the federal e-verify system to check new hires legal status. The bill was passed.
  • IR1538: Introduced by Legislator Jon Cooper, 1538 would have expanded on IR1479 to mandate a pilot program for all contractors in Suffolk County. After researching the flaws of the e-verify system, Legislator Cooper rescinded the bill.
  • County Executive Steve Levy’s two bills: Steve Levy had introduced two bills that would have required employers to use the archaic federal SSNVS system to verify new hires and current employees. The bills were rescinded shortly after Mr. Levy was questioned on the fact that the Department of Social Security clearly says on their website that SSNVS is not to be used as an immigration tool.

Thank you to all of you who came out to oppose these impractical bills. Long Island WINS continues to encourage our elected officials to move in a positive practical direction with legislation and you can too!
