SENATE VOTES TO TABLE E-VERIFY FIVE YEAR EXTENSION

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.

An attempt to amend the Omnibus budget bill to extend the E-Verify program by five years has failed after Senators voted 50 to 47 to table the measure indefinitely. This likely means three things -

1. E-Verify will be extended until September 30th.

2. Congress will presumably deal with a permanent authorization as part of a comprehensive bill this summer.

3. Pro-immigration groups will likely be able to use the need to extend e-Verify as a bargaining chip in negotiations on other measures needing approval of Congress.

    How will this impact students who want to extend 17 months in OPT. IF e-Verify is not extended, then companies are not going to enroll in the program and STEM graduate students cannot apply for 17 months OPT extension.

    To me this proves the Democrats want the illegal's to keep sneaking into the country and taking jobs for lower wages so that only the corporations and bussinesses are the only ones that make a profit or get ahead, therefore contributing to the election of those office holders in our government to get elected again. It's a sham, E-verify should be extended so Americans get the jobs.

    The Senate passed four amendments that will help enforce our immigration laws. However, the leadership of the House and Senate could pull these amendments, when they meet in confeence.

    Call yr elected representatives and the WH and demand these amendments remain in the final bill.
