SCHUMER: IMMIGRATION REFORM WILL HAPPEN THIS YEAR

Rate this Entry

Interesting. The Chair of the Senate's Immigration Subcommittee is sounding pretty confident that an immigration plan will be signed by the President before 2009 is over.

    When I hear the same thing from Lofgren and Pelosi, I would say there is some momentum. Meanwhile, an ardent supporter of CIR in the GOP passes away...

    Not to be negative, but we have been through the same kind of motion before. I will believe it when I see the President sign it.

    Support the revised (SAVE) Act as it targets employers with stiff penalties for hiring illegal aliens, secures the northern and southern border by adding 8,000 new border patrol agents and increases interior enforcement by allowing for additional federal district court judges and provides more resources for law enforcement officers. In this package E-Verify would be mandatory, in-perpetuity driving illegal labor from the workplace. Rep. Heath Schuler's e-verification program, would require federal agencies, contractors and employers to verify the eligibility of --ALL EMPLOYEES--within one to four years, depending on the size of the company. Using this procedure, identity fraud wrought through fake social security numbers and bogus ID's would be reduced significantly.

    This is not about discrimination because E-verify is activated after someone has been hired," Shuler said. "This helps to ensure that local officials can identify who they arrest. Interior enforcement is crucial." It's essential that Americans back him and his sponsors when the act is introduced in the next few weeks. This is namely after Sen. Harry Reid(D-NV) and speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) silently neutralized E-Verify, plus 48 other members of the Senate. We cannot trust these pro-illegal immigrant--PARIAH--cheap labor--BUSINESS politicians. With over 12 million Americans out of work and large numbers of new veterans entering the workplace, nor can our own kids get Summer jobs. We just cannot accept any legalization of 13 to 20 million foreign nationals and the huge costs sustaining them. Offer your support to Rep.Shuler (D-NC) on his gov website.

    Sure of that...? there are plenty of summer jobs in the fields of California and Arizona picking the vegetables, fruits and other agricultural products consumed by americans at the dinner table every night, how come the unemployed are to trying to get work there, there are documented worker shortages there by the way kids can get summer jobs too the fields do not discriminate...

    Some how the same argument is not going to work because I just do not see wallstreeters, bankers, Car dealership workers, real estate workers competing for those jobs...I think they will fare better at the unemployment line.

    As far a E-verify is concern sure it sounds like a nice concepts but in reality it does not work properly there fore it would cause unintended consequences and hurt business and employees while those are worked out...

    I INVITE PEOPLE NOT TO VISIT NUMBERS USA A RACIST ORGANIZATION THAT MISINFORMS AND STICKS TO EVERYTHING BUT THE FACTS........... sort of like the FOX NEWS of the internet!!
