ABSTRACT
The article examines the U.S. Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) and its relevant legislative history. It addresses the legislative purpose and specific provisions of Suff County's attempt to impose additional requirements on employers with respect to hiring undocumented workers, and suggests that local laws enacted to supplement IRCA will not survive an express or implied preemption challenge.
