Texas Democrats Attack Lamar Smith Over HALT Act

Republican Congressman Lamar Smith’s attempt to strip the Obama administration of its immigration enforcement powers has drawn a harsh rebuke from Texas Democrats in the U.S. House, who say the proposal “is an attack on [the president’s] integrity that should not pass unnoticed or unopposed.”

Obama and his administration have shown they cannot be trusted on this issue, that they will actively work counter to US Immigration Code and that their actions are not in the best interest of US citizens.

I don't believe the answer is to pass yet another law, but I do believe Obama needs to go.

"The employer verification bill that Chairman Smith has introduced would require employers to use the e-verify system, in order to keep them from employing undocumented immigrants who do don’t have work authorization. His bill includes a special carveout — an exercise of prosecutorial discretion — for an entire class of employers: they are called “growers.”

It says that any agricultural employer can keep their current employees without verifying their immigration status. Since this is an industry known to employ a workforce that is by most estimates at least 75% undocumented, I can only assume that Mr. Smith intends to give those employers and those workers an amnesty."

Lamar Smith’s E-Verify Bill Must Be Amended, you have to watch this guy, he's on the side of big business.

"The pro-amnesty U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which was the loser in the Arizona case, conspired with House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, to introduce H.R. 2164, which unless amended, will reverse Arizona’s significant victory. This bill sounds helpful because it pretends to make E-Verify mandatory nationwide, but it actually ties the hands of the states.

H.R. 2164 pre-empts the states from requiring use of E-Verify unless employees work for state or local governments. That’s equivalent to giving amnesty to millions of illegal aliens who are currently employed in our country."
