Oklahoma Lawmakers Pushing For Tougher Immigration Laws

Another state is pushing for tougher immigration laws.

Some Oklahoma lawmakers hope to pass laws that will crack down on a illegal immigration.

A new Republican state senator said he would file legislation that would mirror Arizona's controversial law.

That law requires police to question the immigration status of people they suspect are in the U.S. illegally.

But, other elected officials say the problems with illegal immigration are overstated and such laws go too far.
