Three More States Protect American Jobs by Advancing E-Verify Legislation

by Chris Chmielenski, NumbersUSA: It was another great week for us on the state level! Kentucky and Virginia each took big steps toward passing mandatory E-Verify for state agencies and contractors. And the Minnesota House approved an E-Verify amendment to a stimulus bill. Thanks to all our activists in these three states whose phone calls and faxes made a difference.

Congress will be back in town next week, and the Senate will begin work on a Jobs bill, so make sure you check with us early next week for any faxing/calling opportunities to ensure jobs created go to American workers and legal immigrants.

Three House Members have taken the lead on protecting American Jobs. Reps. Lamar Smith (R-TX), Gary Miller (R-CA) and Sue Myrick (R-NC) have formed the Reclaim American Jobs Caucus. Their goal is to raise public awareness of the connection between illegal immigration and unemployment, pressure the Obama Administration to vigorously enforce the laws against the employment of illegal aliens, work to implement legislation that will protect U.S. jobs from the impact of illegal immigration (especially to make E-Verify mandatory) and work to defeat legislation that will put U.S. jobs at risk from the impact of illegal immigration (especially to defeat amnesty).

Good. The more states the better.
This is just common sense. No wonder it is hard for some politicians to understand.
