    MADISON, Wis., Nov. 11 (UPI) -- A Republican legislator says he plans to introduce a Wisconsin version of Arizona's controversial immigration law.

    State Rep. Don Pridemore said he will introduce his bill in 2011, when a new Republican majority takes over, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

    "I want Wisconsin to be recognized as a state that will be on the side of Arizona," he said.

    The bill would require everyone charged with a crime in Wisconsin to prove they are in the country legally. If they cannot do so, they would be turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

    Residents would be able to sue local governments for not enforcing immigration laws. Counties and municipalities could be compelled to pay penalties of up to $500 a day.

    The bill would repeal a Madison ordinance allowing residents to receive social service benefits without proving citizenship. Madison is the state capital, home of the University of Wisconsin and a liberal enclave.

    Individual Americans should be able to sue their governments for not protecting them from invasion by foreigners and for supplying the invaders with aid.

    That is just a little more than what is in my neighborhood. Can you do something about Illinois?
