Hammond served in the Nevada State Assembly, representing District 13 from 2011 to 2012. My career has been dedicated to making sure our children receive the best education available. At the beginning of the 2017 legislative session, this legislator served on the following committees: Job Creation: "...The law was originally scheduled to take effect on September 1, 2011, but legal actions were taken against it by the Obama administration, some religious groups, student groups (Spanish and Latino Student Alliance), and some immigrant-rights groups, all making claims that the law was unconstitutional. Less than a month after the bill was signed into law, the Hispanic Interest Coalition of Alabama (HICA) filed the case Hispanic Interest Coalition of Alabama v. Department of Justice and a coalition of groups including the ACLU appealed that ruling, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals on October 14, 2011, again put several key provisions on hold until the issues of constitutionality could be addressed, including the requirement on schools to collect information on enrolling students' immigration status. Judge Myron Herbert Thompson, sitting for the United States District Court for the Middle District of Alabama, blocked an additional portion of the law on November 23, 2011, that prevented undocumented immigrants from obtaining certain mobile home registrations.Bentley challenging HB 56 on the grounds that various provisions of the act, and the entire law as a whole, are preempted by federal law, and are therefore illegal. Other provisions, such as those making contracts with undocumented aliens null and void, were left to stand. In a further December 12, 2011, ruling, Thompson attacked the history behind the law, describing the legislative debate as having been "laced with derogatory comments about Hispanics." He said it was likely that the entire law was "discriminatorily based" and that lawmakers employed ethnic stereotypes and used the terms "Hispanic" and "illegal immigrant" interchangeably.Contracts formed in which one party is an illegal immigrant and the other has direct knowledge of that are deemed null and void.The law also requires voters to provide proof of citizenship when registering. Judge Sharon Lovelace Blackburn, sitting for the United States District Court for the Northern District of Alabama, temporarily blocked enforcement of the law, saying she needed more time to study the case.He accused State Representative Hammon of having misused a news article to justify a claim that Alabama was home to the second fastest growing population of undocumented immigrants in the nation.
It bars illegal immigrants from attending publicly owned colleges or universities (currently blocked).The Alabama law requires that if police have "reasonable suspicion" that a person is an immigrant unlawfully present in the United States, in the midst of any legal stop, detention or arrest, to make a similarly reasonable attempt to determine that person's legal status.An exemption is provided if such action would hinder an official investigation of some kind.On November 2, 2010, Hammond won election to the Nevada House of Representatives.Hammond defeated Joshua Gust, Nathan Taylor, Alan Le Febvre, and Clayton Hurst in the June 8 primary election.
