S.C. won't pass Arizona-style immigration bill in 2010

A new immigration law will not be passed in South Carolina this year, but lawmakers set the stage Thursday for one to be debated in 2011. A Senate Judiciary subcommittee met to discuss a bill that would require police to check a person's residency status after he or she was stopped or detained for another reason. It also would make it a crime for illegal immigrants to solicit work.
