//News// Oklahoma signs immigration bill

The Federal State of Oklahoma passed an immigration bill that seeks to prevent illegal immigrants from finding work across the state.

The new legislation is a stopgap measure to deal with illegal immigration until the U.S. Congress comes up with a comprehensive immigration reform law, said Gov. Brad Henry of Oklahoma.

Under the new immigration law, government and public agencies must verify a job applicant's citizenship and immigration status before employment. It also provides for a screening process that will ensure that an applicant's social security number matches his identity.

The bill does not prevent illegal immigrants from seeking emergency health services or enroling in public schools.
