This along with the Fence is a great start. What do you think?


One of the strongest draws to the United States for illegal immigrants is our economy and enticing job market. It is critical that we remove this incentive for illegal migrants. As a result, Republican President Candidate, Rep. Duncan Hunter has cosponsored H.R. 19, which would require the Department of Homeland Security to implement a nationwide employment verification system. Employers need to have an easy, reliable and efficient system to verify an employee’s status and there must be real consequences imposed on employers who willfully break the law and employ illegal immigrants.

There is no way that is going to pass the democratically controlled congress. It will pass if it is coupled together with some legalization measures.

Sounds like a major winner to me, ProudCapMarine.

Unfortunately, many of the Employers of Illegals are fully aware of the illegal status of their employees but prefer to take the risk mainly because the punishment, if any, is so puny while the rewards and advantages are so great.

Too bad Duncan Hunter is not doing better in his run for The President.

He would definitely have my vote!

I really doubt this will pass through congress, and even if it did Bush wouldn't sign it.

Here's some details about the bill. http://www.numbersusa.com/PDFs/Calve...icationSBS.pdf

It takes care of employers, based on size of the company.

Homeland Security isn't close to implementing anything of the sort and the thread title is misleading.

Ken Calvert introduced the same or similar bill twice with only 29 co-sponsors.

(which in terms of House representative numbers, only 29 co-sponsors is very low to expect passage of a bill)

HR 19 as described in the last link the capn provided was declared dead in the 109th Republican Majority Congress.

Pretty funny for blacknight to say there's no way the Democrats will pass the bill, being that there was no way the Republicans would either, and they already had a chance to pass it in the last Congress.

(.....if it's such a great move for the Republicans to pass the bill, or that the Democrats wouldn't, why didn't the Republicans pass it when they had the majority to make it happen, eh' blackknight?)

Another attempt at passing similar legislation is stalled, once again, and apparently going nowhere soon.

HR 19 was introduced in the 110th Congressional session on January 4th, 2007 and it's been in and out of three committees in as many months.

The last action on the bill was to move it to yet another committee and it's sat there since May 9th.

http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d110:h19:

It's easy for Hunter to say woulda, coulda, shoulda, ....that doesn't mean Hunter actually got anything done or that he will.

Nor does it hint that Homeland Security is anywhere near close to implementing anything.

The thread title is misleading.





http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d110:h19:



...and you who think the Democrats won't pass this bill, you might look up who voted to kill it, and who voted do not pass.

The Republicans killed it once already, you might want to inform yourselves who is blocking it again.
