The S.C. Senate adjourned for the week today without voting on a controversial illegal immigration bill.
That bill would require police to ask for photo identification as proof a person is in the country legally during traffic stops or arrests.
Under the bill, police could not stop a person on the suspicion that he or she was in the country illegally. If the stopped person cannot produce an ID, police would have to make calls to determine if such ID ever was issued to the person. If a person was found to be in the country illegally, police would contact federal immigration officials.
