8 Million Illegals Taking Legal American Citizens Jobs

Bill Smith, Editor: Noting the The Washington Post, April 9 the editorial "Sensible improvements on immigration" does not mean that I agree with it. First, it appears to be trying to move people, specifically conservatives, into accepting a "back-door" amnesty program.   The Post obviously was not concerned about unemployed Americans. Example, they overlooked one very big critical factoid: 8 million illegals taking legal American citizens jobs.

Where was their acknowledgement that 8 million illegal aliens are still in our workforce when 20 million Americans are unable to find full-time employment? Well that was not part of their agenda. And why didn't the Post demand to know why the House GOP leadership is not bringing the Legal Workforce Act (H.R. 2885) to the floor for a vote? H.R. 2885, The Legal Workforce Act, has 74 sponsors and the bill is being held up in the House Ways and Means Committee by its Chairman, Republican Rep. Dave Camp (MI-4th Dist). It has already been through the Full Judiciary Committee six months ago. H.R. 2885 bill is to amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to make mandatory and permanent requirements relating to use of an electronic employment eligibility verification system (EVerify), and for other purposes.

Congress returns to work on Monday, April 16. Readers may wish to contact the Chairman Rep. Dave Camp and encourage him to get this bill out of committee.  This bill should have been a "slam dunk" bill.  Illegals are taking away jobs that should only be available to legal citizens (20 million of them are jobless).  Read more on the bill at Open Congress.

I sent Chairman Camp a few tweets but have yet received a reply.

@WaysandMeansGOP @RepDaveCamp Please hold hearing & vote on HR 2885. 7 M #illegals in non-ag jobs. 20 M Americans need job. Do the math!

@WaysandMeansGOP When will there be a hearing on HR 2885? #EVerify would open jobs held by #illegals to millions of unemployed Americans

Can't believe this, it is unacceptable. It is time to stop this madness. So much damage is being done and the election is months away. This invasion has to be stopped. Everyone should call, or e-mail your reps and make such a uproar that something is done. The reps who voted on this, should be booted out of office.
