"There is evidence that the recession reduced the inflow of new immigrants to the U. and new immigrants to Arizona," the researchers wrote.To account for this, Lofstrom said they compared the labor market in Arizona with states that had similar employment trends before Arizona mandated the use of E-Verify, including California, Maryland and North Carolina.Under House Bill 6938 or the Child Safety in Motor Vehicles Act, children riding in private vehicles must use child restraint systems such as car safety seats that is "appropriate to the child's size, height and weight." The measure also bans children below 12 years old from occupying the front seats unless the child can "properly fit in the regular seat belt." "To guarantee the safety and welfare of infants and children and prevent traffic-related deaths and injuries, there is a need to require, regulate and promote, and inform the public on the use of child restraint systems in motor vehicles and provide access to safe, appropriate, quality and affordable child restraint systems," a statement from the office of House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez read.Once signed into law, the Department of Trade and Industry will be directed to come up with a set of standards for "child restraint systems that will be sold, distributed and used in the Philippines." An implementing rules and regulations that will contain the penalties for non-compliant drivers, manufacturers, and sellers has yet to be formulated.
In fact, the employment rate for low-skilled working-age men authorized to work in Arizona was estimated to have fallen from about 70% to 66% between 20, according to the researchers' analysis of the U. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Current Population Survey.Arizona, long considered ground zero in the fight against undocumented immigration, was the first state to mandate that all employers use E-Verify beginning in 2008.Several other states have started requiring the use of the verification system in some manner since then, including Alabama, Mississippi and South Carolina.The researchers then examined labor market differences between the states since Arizona mandated the use of E-Verify.The researchers did find one positive result: Low-skilled non-Hispanic men who were working during that period saw their average wages increase by as much as 4 a week, or about 10% to 20%, after the E-Verify mandate was put in place, according to Lofstrom's research.
