Proposal would require Missouri schools to verify students' immigration status

Missouri could be the next battleground in a nationwide fight over tougher immigration laws. State Sen. Will Kraus, a Lee’s Summit Republican, is sponsoring a bill that would mandate that all public schools verify the immigration status of enrollees. It also would require law enforcement officers to check immigration status on all stops when they have reasonable cause, and create a state misdemeanor for not carrying proper citizenship documentation.
