Anti-Immigrant Bill in Mississippi Dies

From “Immigration Enforcement Bill Killed”

Jackson, Miss. (AP) – An immigration-enforcement bill has died because a chairman chose not to bring it up for a vote in a Mississippi Senate committee.
However, the issue might not be dead.
Some House members are trying to put immigration-enforcement provisions into other bills that are still alive. It’s unclear whether those efforts will succeed. Senate Judiciary B Committee Chairman Hob Bryan says he chose not to bring House Bill 488 up for consideration because he believes it attempts to micromanage the way police officers and sheriffs do their jobs.
Because the bill didn’t receive a vote in Judiciary B, it died under a deadline.  Tuesday was the final day for House and Senate committees to act on general bills that have already passed the opposite chamber.
