Demand reinstatement of E-VERIFY? YOUR JOB IS IN PERIL!

WHO KILLED THE E-VERIFY IN THE STIMULUS PACKAGE? Thought the whole idea of the Stimulus bill was to support, the millions of unemployed AMERICAN WORKERS. Instead Speaker Pelosi and Senator Harry Reid in secret and no discussion killed E-Verify. It would have stopped illegal aliens getting jobs. Instead shows you that Politicians are still puppets of big business and the special interest lobbyists. E-Verify costs pennies instead of $ Billions to function?

THE SO CALLED US CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, PANDERS TO FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS!

HOW MANY BILLIONS OF DOLLARS COULD BE SAVED, IF US TAXPAYERS WERE NOT FORCED TO PAY FOR EDUCATION, HEALTH CARE AND OTHER GOVERNMENT BENEFITS, INCLUDING AN OVERCROWDED PRISON SYSTEM.
ALL THIS TO BENEFIT PREDATORY BUSINESSES WHO HIRE ILLEGAL ALIENS OVER AMERICANS.

Voice your anger at the politicians, by calling the Capital switchboard at (202) 224-3121 MAKE THEM SWEAT!

OH! YES! AND BUY AMERICAN!

She did not even read the bill. Our congressmen and senators are relying upon their staff, which they should, but they should read each bill and understand it before taking a position. Is that too much to ask?
