State Democratic lawmakers in the United States are taking aim at businesses that hire undocumented workers

Iowa's Democratic leaders want the attorney general to investigate companies that hire undocumented workers, and Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano, also a Democrat, is backing a bill to impose big fines on companies that employ illegal immigrants, Stateline.org said Tuesday.

Similar proposals have been discussed in a growing number of states, including Colorado, Indiana, Maryland and New Hampshire, as legislators ratchet up state-based efforts to deal with illegal immigration by pointing their pens at those who hire illegal immigrants, not just at workers.
