Trust each other? so why are so many Mexicans killing each other and dumping their bodies on the highways?

Victory! E-Verify Bill Passes Through Judiciary Without Major Changes.

21 Sept 2011

"The House Judiciary Committee passed Chairman Lamar Smith's Legal Workforce Act on Wednesday afternoon 22-to-13. Only two amendments were approved by the committee, including one offered by Chairman Smith himself. The bill, H.R.2885, would require all employers to use E-Verify within 2 years for all non-agricultural new hires, while requiring federal, state and local agencies to check current employees as well within 6 months."

This bill e verifies all employees 100% even those illegals working under a valid SS#.

Bill introduced to end child tax credits to illegal aliens.

"Rep. Sam Johnson (R-TX) has just introduced legislation (The Refundable Child Tax Credit Eligibility Verification Reform Act (HR 1956))which would block illegal aliens from receiving any further child tax credits from the Internal Revenue Service."

Could it be that undocumented workers actually work for the pay they get.
Not at all.

It's more like you work for below minimum wage without benefits and employers don't have to match social security or medicare. Nor do they have to provide you with worker's compensation.

See, when one of you get hurt they just boot you out the door then drive by Home Depot and pick up another one.

Seattle City Attorney's Office Reduces Misdemeanor Sentences To Avoid
Deportations Of Immigrants

This past May, the Seattle City Attorney's office instituted a policy
intended to protect noncitizen immigrants from deportation for misdemeanor
offenses.

Prosecuting attorneys for the city are requesting that the court sentence a
defendant to a maximum of 364 days in jail for a gross misdemeanor instead
of 365 days. This sentencing policy shields noncitizen defendants from the
possibility of being deported on a single charge because receiving a
sentence of 365 days or more, even if a defendant does not spend a day in
jail, triggers an automatic notice to the Immigration and Naturalization
Services (INS), which can lead to deportation proceedings.

The policy's goals

The purpose of the policy is to "treat citizens and noncitizens equally in
criminal prosecution," according to a city press release.

"We implemented our new sentencing policy to comply with SMC 4.18.015,
Seattle's 'don't ask, don't tell ordinance,' " explained John Schochet, who
serves as special counsel and policy adviser to the city attorney.

The ordinance prohibits city employees from "inquir[ing] into the
immigration status of any person, or engag[ing] in activities designed to
ascertain the immigration status of any person. By asking for a 364-day
total sentence instead of a 365-day sentence, in most cases, the city
attorney's office will no longer put noncitizen defendants in a position of
having to identify themselves as noncitizens."

"One [365-day] charge could result in many immigrants being deported," said
Shankar Narayan of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). The ACLU was
one of several groups pleased that the city attorney implemented the new
policy.

Another group, the Northwest Immigrants Rights Project (NWIRP), believes
that the city policy is "a positive development" and "a step in the right
direction," according to its executive director, Jorge Barron.

The NWIRP represents the interests of low-income immigrants by pursuing and
defending their legal status.

Barron indicated that there have been many immigrants from Asian communities
who were unaware of the potential consequences when they met with their
attorneys and accepted sentences that put their stay in the United States in
jeopardy.

"We (ACLU) did talk to Pete Holmes (elected city attorney) and felt it was a
due process issue that was involved," said Narayan. The stance of the ACLU
is that in the case of gross misdemeanor, deportation is a punishment that
exceeds the crime.

"Bill introduced to end child tax credits to illegal aliens."

Some illegal aliens boast about paying taxes. We have ALWAYS said that the only reason they file taxes is to get a refund! When over 70% have this kind of claim, all should be audited pending refunds. Oh, and Nap should add this to the number of offenses for the 300,000 of case by case basis. Afterall, since we are trying of improve our economy,$3.4 billion is a nice number to start.

So much for being broken hearted and having a heart...

Yeah, read it and weep...

The only thing that really saves Seattle is that it is too expensive so illegal aliens crowd cities to the south. Don't take my word for it, pull up the crime stats for King County and you will know where. They are also trying to redistrict because they feel that minorities are not well represented in the current configueration. Well, as a visible minority American citizen, things can stay just as they are...we don't need illegal alien represenation in our government!

ILLEGAL ALIENS don't give a hoot about profits for businesses.

They care about themselves. No matter how little they earn it is many times what they would earn in their home country. They work the system by having anchor babies that qualify them for all manner of social service programs. They also are adept at using stolen or phony ID to qualify for welfare. That frees up their meager wages which they send back to relatives in their home countries.

. First of all mee, you need to go back to school that I helped pay. The real reason why Walmart, McDonalds and every other Freaking Co or Corp hires Illegals is for one reason GREED! Hire an Illegal and you avoid Work Comp Ins, State Tax, Unemployment Ins, Health Ins, 401K. This half of the reason why the whole US is almost BANKRUPT. The other half is every Legal Tax Paying Citizen is FORCED to pay for your lavish FREEBY lifestyle in the way of higher taxes. Wake up mee and get your head out of your __S.

Just because someone is represented by a union doesn't mean they are worth $25 an hour with all the benefits you mentioned above.

The undocumented worker allows companies to stay in business.
