ABSTRACT
This article reports on legislation put forth by U.S. House of Representative's Ginny Brown-Waite that would penalize contractors who hire undocumented workers. The Border Control and Contractor Accountability Act of 2007 would suspend contractors from federal jobs if they hired illegal aliens. Further, the law would require that companies participate in the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) employment verification system. The law would stop the federal government from hiring any company in noncompliance and would call for a three year suspension of companies that get caught with illegal workers. It would also make sure that Small Business Association loans would not be granted to offenders.
