Immigration Debate Slated

Illegal immigration is set to take center stage at the Statehouse.

The Kansas House and Senate are slated to debate bills dealing with the issue Wednesday.

Supporters of the action say Kansas needs to deal with an increasing number of illegal immigrants. Among contested items in the bill are requiring businesses to use a federal database to screen potential employees to make sure they are legal citizens and denying most benefits to illegal immigrants.

If the chambers each pass their versions of the immigration bill, a final measure will be written by negotiators from both chambers.
