The South Carolina House of Representatives voted 69-43 on Tuesday to enact legislation aimed at reforming the state’s immigration laws. The immigration reform bill allows police officers to check a suspect’s immigration status during a lawful stop, seizure, detention, or arrest, and mandates businesses to participate in the E-Verify system.  The Bill now heads to South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley for signing.  Several civil rights groups have announced they will challenge the consitutionality of the law in court.
