Pennsylvanians who knowingly hire illegal immigrants would lose their professional licenses under a bill being considered by the Pennsylvania Legislature.
If enacted, the Professional Licensees Illegal Employment Act could shut down any enterprise licensed by the state’s Bureau of Occupational and Professional Affairs. The “one-strike-and-you’re-out” law would yank licenses for first-offense violations.
Supporters said the proposed law would help prevent people who are in the United States illegally from holding jobs that legal residents could otherwise have. Others say pulling professional licenses for the first offenses would actually cost jobs by putting employers out of business.
