Bill targets Wyandotte County ‘Safe and Welcoming’ law


Republican Attorney General Derek Schmidt has introduced a bill targeting laws similar to one enacted by Wyandotte County that gives undocumented immigrants the chance to get a municipal photo ID and prohibits local law enforcement from working with federal immigration authorities.

The bill makes it illegal for any city to pass a law that would in any way keep a law enforcement officer from cooperating with federal authorities to collect and exchange information about immigration status.

The bill also prohibits a municipality to limit or restrict enforcement of federal immigration laws.
