The Huffington Post reports:
CHARLESTON, South Carolina (Reuters)–South Carolina’s House of Representatives approved on Tuesday a comprehensive illegal immigration bill that would allow police to ask for citizenship documentation from anyone they stop or detain for another reason.
It would also allow police to hold a person who fails to provide documentation until their citizenship status is determined.
The Republican-controlled House on Tuesday night voted 69-43 to approve a Senate bill and added amendments. The Senate must concur. If it does not, a conference committee will reconcile the two houses’ differences.
South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is expected to sign the bill.
