Quote:
A bill to provide for the determination of the immigration

status of persons present in this state under certain

circumstances; to allow for the enforcement of immigration laws in

this state and the detaining and transportation of persons

unlawfully present in the United States; to allow for certain civil

actions; and to provide for certain civil fines and criminal

penalties.

THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF MICHIGAN ENACT:

Sec. 1. This act shall be known and may be cited as the

"immigration law enforcement act".

Sec. 2. (1) An officer or agency of this state or a political

subdivision of this state shall not limit or restrict the

enforcement of federal immigration laws to less than the full

extent permitted by federal law.



(2) For any lawful stop, detention, or arrest made by a law

enforcement officer or law enforcement agency of this state or a

law enforcement officer or law enforcement agency of a political

subdivision of this state in the enforcement of any other state law

or local ordinance, where reasonable suspicion exists that the

person is an alien and is unlawfully present in the United States,

the law enforcement officer or agency shall make a reasonable

attempt, when practicable, to determine the immigration status of

the person unless the determination may hinder or obstruct an

investigation. Any person who is arrested shall have his or her

immigration status determined before the person is released. The

person's immigration status shall be verified with the federal

government pursuant to 8 USC 1373(c). A law enforcement officer or

law enforcement agency of this state or a law enforcement officer

or law enforcement agency of a political subdivision of this state

may not solely consider race, color, or national origin in

implementing the requirements of this subsection except to the

extent permitted by the constitution of the United States or the

state constitution of 1963. A person is presumed to not be an alien

who is unlawfully present in the United States if the person

provides to the law enforcement officer or agency any of the

following:

(a) A valid Michigan operator's or chauffeur's license.

(b) A valid Michigan state personal identification card.

(c) A valid tribal enrollment card or other form of tribal

identification.

(d) Any other valid United States, state, or local government



issued identification if the issuing entity requires proof of legal

presence in the United States before issuance.
