Legislative Review Note
    as of 2-1-11 10:03 AM


As required by legislative rule and practice, the Office of Legislative Research and General
Counsel provides the following legislative review note to assist the Legislature in making its
own determination as to the constitutionality of the bill. The note is based on an analysis of
relevant state and federal constitutional law as applied to the bill. The note is not written for the
purpose of influencing whether the bill should become law, but is written to provide
information relevant to legislators' consideration of this bill. The note is not a substitute for the
judgment of the judiciary, which has authority to determine the constitutionality of a law in the
context of a specific case.

The Constitution of the United States grants authority to the federal government to regulate
foreign commerce and to adopt a uniform rule of naturalization. The United States Supreme
Court has also found inherent federal authority to regulate immigration on the basis of federal
sovereignty and the power to engage in foreign affairs, this is sometimes referred to as the
"plenary power," which in more recent years has been made subject to certain constitutional
limits. See, e.g., Zadvydas v. Davis, 533 U.S. 678 (2001); Fong Yue Ting v. United States, 149
U.S. 698 (1893); Hernandez-Carrera v. Carlson, 547 F.3d 1237 (10th Cir. 2009). Federal
immigration law generally consists of both civil and criminal laws regarding admission of
foreign nationals, including the criteria and means for selection and the basis and procedure for
removal; citizenship by birth or by naturalization; criminal actions, such as transporting or
harboring an alien; and related laws such as access to public benefits, employment of
unauthorized aliens, issuance of driver licenses, etc. The key federal statute is the Immigration
and Nationality Act (INA).

When a state regulates in the area of immigration, the issue arises of whether the state action is
preempted by federal law. To determine whether preemption exists, courts generally examine
whether the state regulation fails at least one of three tests: Is it preempted because of a
conflict with federal law? Is it preempted because federal law has so occupied the field that
states are not allowed to regulate in the area? Is there an express preemption of state action?

The bill addresses areas also addressed by federal law such as accessing and disclosing
immigration information. Significantly, this bill provides a means by which a person may
employ an unauthorized alien in this state if the unauthorized alien is issued a state permit, and
the bill imposes state specific penalties for hiring an unauthorized alien without a permit.
Federal law, in 8 U.S.C. Sec. 1324a, makes it unlawful to hire, recruit,or refer for a fee, an
alien for employment in the United States knowing that the alien is an unauthorized alien. This
section further provides that "The provisions of this section preempt any State or local law
imposing civil or criminal sanctions (other than through licensing and similar laws) upon those
who employ, or recruit or refer for a fee for employment, unauthorized aliens."

The bill requires the governor to seek waivers that would authorize the state program. Although
federal law contains measures to allow cooperation between the federal government and a state,
the INA and related regulations do not have an express process to provide a waiver that grants


states authority to related to state laws in areas that are governed by federal law. In the absence
of an effective waiver recognized as valid by the courts, under current law, there is a high
probability that a court would find that portions of this bill are preempted by federal law as
applied through the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution of the United States.
