Letís shut down the Senate switchboards again. We canít allow the current version of this bill to pass. These jobs must be given only to legal residents of this country.

Quote:
The Senate stimulus bill would provide roughly $104 billion in funding for a variety of construction projects including highways, schools, and renovation of public housing. This funding will be spread over five to seven years. Normal government estimates indicate that each $1 billion spent on construction will create around 19,500 construction jobs, each lasting a year.[2] Thus $104 billion in funding in construction projects would ostensibly create construction-related jobs for about 2.04 million workers over several years. Without specific mechanisms to ensure that workers are U.S. citizens or legal immigrants authorized to work, it is likely that 15 percent of these workers, or 300,000, would be illegal immigrants.

The House-passed version of the stimulus bill (H.R. 1, the American Recovery an Reinvestment Act) contains explicit language, introduced by Congressman Jack Kingston (R-GA), requiring that all contractors receiving funds under the bill use the federal E-Verify system to determine whether workers are U.S. citizens or legal immigrants authorized to work.

The stimulus bill currently being debated in the Senate deliberately omits the E-Verify provision from the House bill. Later this week, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) will introduce an amendment to include the House E-Verify language in the Senate bill. However, if the current Senate bill were to become law without language requiring contractor use of E-Verify, the inevitable result would be billions in federal funds spent to employ illegal immigrants.

Where in the bill does it say the jobs would go to 300,000 illegal immigrants? Even if what you are saying is true( which is not), do you even care about 1.7 millions plus american workers this stimilus bill is going to help in the construction industry? Just like the S-CHIP bill, most of you claim to care about Americans but we all know that's a lie.It's all about your unhealthy obsession with illegal immigrants.

This legislation is directed toward people who are legal in our country. It is about time the Republicans got a different piece of reading material and get off this illegal immigrant stuff," said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. "This bill has nothing to do with anything illegal as far as immigration. It creates jobs for people who are lawfully in this country."

Unless a provision is included in the Senate version of the bill prohibiting the employment of illegal aliens, they will be hired. If it were not necessary, the House would not have included a provision. Our federal government is replete with illegal aliens, and this would be no exception.

And NO, I donít want ONE illegal benefiting from these stimulus jobs!


Please. . . . Harry Reid is one of the primary slave traders.

I guess this is right-wing hyperbole also.

Where does it say it won't go to 300k illegal workers? History is what we have as a benchmark. I'm not ok with this going to 300K illegal workers. Of course I'm not RELATED to any of them so I am unbiased.
