Public Description:  

H.R. 2670, the Jobs for Americans Act, would authorize state and local governments to 'enact and enforce laws' within the limits of federal statute that help identify illegal aliens, deter illegal entry, apprehend illegal aliens, and reduce rewards that encourage illegal aliens to remain in the United States. In addition, this legislation would avert the federal preemption of state and local laws against individuals who knowingly employ, recruit, or refer (for a fee) an illegal alien for employment.
