Oklahoma City, OK – Twenty-eight different business, labor and civil rights groups have filed briefs in support of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's legal fight against Oklahoma's tough illegal immigration law.
The chamber questions the validity of a requirement that businesses use a voluntary federal worker verification system. The lawsuit is currently before the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver.
A spokesman for the chamber, in a statement yesterday from Washington, D.C., said diverse groups agree that states should not set national immigration policy.
