OK - Now the libs say the Govt cannot be trusted due to flaws / errors in the E-verify database. Then they'll turn around and nationalize health care!!!!
Good God help us.

The only reason they're against E-Verify is its' 99.5% accuracy! Clearly the SS numbers and ID's of American citizens being protected from thieves is of no concern?

Greedy "acvocates" the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, ACLU, big business, etc. etc. etc know it'd weed out prospective illegal workers and oh we wouldn't want that now, would we?

National heathcare is yet another program to protect illegal aliens and their family members. I am adamently against the program!

American workers should be protected, and should have been protected all along; we haven't been, for a couple of decades, due to greed. Look where it has gotten us! In California, the unemployment rate is 9.3% and climbing. Another problem is all the visas, handed out to workers, from other countries. How can we have a stable economy when foreign workers, legal, and illegal, are preferred? Foreign workers send a large portion of their money to their native country, Americans spend their money in their own country. For too many years, we have been outsourcing jobs, and importing workers. Demand that your "representative" support the American worker by supporting E-Verify.

Just for the record, this so-called stimulus won't stimulate much of anything! Just 5%, of the mess, might create a few jobs! Those few jobs should go to Americans!

1986 Amnesty was a COMPLETE failure, because Enforcement was not REALIZED and now we have more ILLEGAL ALIENS than every before!
"in the first year of democratic majority rule, Nelson Mandela’s government expelled almost 60,000 undocumented migrants, most of whom were from neighboring Mozambique. " - President Obamas role model. "South Africa has shown that a country determined to put its own citizens’ interests first will deport illegal aliens in numbers. Yet its example is ignored by those who say "it can't be done". The answer is: "Yes it can". It can even be done creatively."

We need the SAVE ACT and E-verify used for every business and NOT Amnesty for criminals.

E-verify does not discriminate against RACE, Religion, SEX or physically capability only your Citizenship and your LEGAL right to be and work in United States. If we can stop Predatory business owners from hiring then the Illegal Aliens will not Stay and return to their native Countries.

This ISSUE is not about RACE, but Governments Federal/State/LOCAL not doing their jobs, because big and small business owners want cheap workers and no labor laws to bother with......Its called GREED!

Citizen verification is a must. You hear me a MUST! We can not be helping out non-citizens in this matter. It already ill's me that we give these people free health care and provide them with social services. Now I'm not a cold hearted person. But it is illegal for them to be here. Why do we need to pick up the cost as well. We are paying for people who do not belong in the country anyways.

BACA!!! No stimulous for your illegals!!!!

Odd, isn't it that the opponents of E-Verify are the advocacy organizations that defend illegal immigration. E-Verify works. They don't like it. End of story.

E- Verify is a good start. Enforcement at the borders and workplaces is a MUST! All tax payer stimulus money should go to American workers and companies. Otherwise we get screwed both coming AND going. Illegal immigrants need to go home now, the party is over.

Glad to hear it's working, in AZ, even though Napolitano fought it tooth and nail! Does that mean we, Californians, can find work when we move there? This state is doomed, thanks to the "progressives" and our RINO governor.

It's well past time to defend and protect the "CITIZENS" of America. Legal citizens, that is. We have been flooded with Illegal "ALIENS" "AND PEOPLE THINK IT'S UP TO OUR TAX DOLLARS " to support them, educate them, house them, and provide free medical and lose our jobs to their slave mannerisms. If they are not here legally and are in violation of our laws, deport them, prosecute the employer. These people and their groups are yelling about THEIR RIGHTS, what rights, the are not citizens of our country.
Put this on a ballot and let the LEGAL CITIZENS say what they want this to be. It won't be in favor of the ALIEN'S..... Rule of thumb.....don't breed them, if you can't feed them and that goes for everyone. If we can't take care of our own, why in the hell would we be forced to care for ALIEN'S?????????? Why do I have to press one for English?????????? Why does my grandson have to come get me to fix Sponge Bob, he's broke. Mexican chanel on my TV, in my house and on the cable I pay for..........If you think Americans are feeling all sympathetic about the Aliens, get a grip and do a reality check. They are as welcome as the illnesses and crime they bring with them. They have this thing for grabing their croches and flipping people off, doesn't this alone make you proud to have them here????? Sickening isn't it ????

I don't know why employers are so afraid of the E-Verify program. I use it on a daily basis and it is a very user friendly program that does not take up much time. It takes approximately one minute from start to finish if there are no discrepancies. If notices need to be issued and the procedures are followed as they should be, there is very little down time for either the employer or the employee. Some seem to suggest that millions of Americans won't be employable because of government database errors. Don't you think this is a good way for the database to be corrected?

We'll only get effective legislation to halt illegal immigration when the lawmakers start losing THEIR jobs to the illegals.

To date only one (R) Senator David Vitter had what it takes to state he's against more money for Acorn. Dirty Harry Reid was just on the Senate Floor, basically stating the bill will pass it's what the Prez wants. Get rid of Reid, Nevada! He's not worthy of re-election, nor is his buddy Nancy Porkbarrel Pelosi!

Have you watched Fox news this morning? Apparently the county governments will NOT receive any money. My Gawd you folks are sinking, while more illegals are given the welcome-wagon treatment.

What about the dual citizenship children that are born here (aka anchor babies)? They receive much funding. And guess where their loyalties lie? The following video is an eye opener, but even more shocking are the comments made by the viewers, who consider it a victory of some sort.
The less opportunity for illegal hiring, the less children who will be born here who are loyal to another country while enjoying our country's benefits. We are paying to raise these children who do not respect America.

Sounds good but how will it be checked? Many jobs go to sub contractors where illegals get hired.

Funny how nobody is arguing that the president really needs a line item veto authority anymore. What's the matter, still sore about losing the last election and your GOP party?
