Business Opposition to Kansas Immigration Push

January 1, 2011 § Leave a comment

Kansas legislators expect next year to join lawmakers in several states trying to crack down on immigration. They face a big obstacle in getting Kansas to emulate Arizona and other states pursuing immigration policies. The business community, particularly the Kansas Chamber of Commerce, is opposed to the effort. The chamber’s resistance creates an odd political dynamic in Kansas. Some legislators advocating the low-tax, small-government agenda favored by the chamber will be fighting the state’s largest business group on immigration. So far, the chamber has prevailed. But advocates of get-tough measures believe they’re tapping into national frustration and expect pressure to build on the Legislature after it opens its annual session Jan. 10. (AP)
