Illegal Aliens Take Amnesty Demands to the Streets
It's lamentable that the nation's 11-18 million illegal aliens are demanding work permits while 20 million Americans who want a full-time job can't find one. In a recent poll, Americans admitted that they do have compassion for illegal aliens, but they have even more compassion for our country's unemployed. And when given the choice between helping America's unemployed or helping illegal aliens, the overwhelming majority choose America's unemployed. Roy has more details in his new blog.
Roy's blog also discusses the new blanket amnesty bill that was introduced by House Democrats earlier this week. The bill, that was coincidentally introduced just a few days before pro-amnesty marchers take to the streets, takes the Schumer-Rubio-Obama amnesty bill, S.744, removes the Corker-Hoeven bord er amendment, and adds Rep. Michael McCaul's "border security" bill that has already been approved by the House Homeland Security Committee.
During the press conference announcing introduction of the bill, Rep. Pelosi revealed the Democrats' strategy:
-- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi
Meanwhile, multiple news outlets are reporting that House GOP Leaders are preparing to bri ng several bills to the House floor for votes. Those same reports also say that top GOP Leaders continue to work on the details for legalizing and granting work permits to most illegal aliens. Because of this, we must ensure that NO immigration-related bill passes through the House until S.744 is officially dead, which can only happen at the end of the 113th Congress or official rejection by the House.
Also this week, we learned that the government shutdown is having an impact on enforcement. The vice president for the union that represents our country's border patrol agents said that he's hearing reports from the field that agents are being told to "stand down" for budgetary reasons. He says this puts our nation at risk by allowing illegal aliens, drug smugglers, and potential terrorists to cross the border illegally and undetected.
Additionally, Citizenship and Immigration Services has sent a notice to all businesses that use the E-Verify workplace verification system, notifying them that the system will be unusable during the shutdown. They've instructed employers not to take any adverse action against employees who are awaiting a decision on recent tentative non-confirmations, and they've waived the rule requiring new hires to be run through the system within three days.
