WASHINGTON, March 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- At a time of soaring unemployment, the Indiana State House of Representatives is blocking legislation that would help prevent employers from filling jobs with illegal aliens. Senate Bill 580, which the Senate passed by a 37-13 vote, requires state and local governments to use the federal E-Verify system and provides incentives for Indiana businesses to do the same. The bill would also allow the state to punish companies that knowingly hire illegal aliens, and even suspend their business licenses. Gov. Mitch Daniels has pledged to sign the legislation if it is sent to his desk.
The Indiana House Can Protect Hoosiers' Jobs by Passing Senate Bill 580 (http://news.yahoo.com/s/usnw/20090318/pl_usnw/the_indiana_house_can_protect_hoosiers__jobs_by_pa ssing_senate_bill580 - broken link)

Let's hope that enough people have common sense to ensure that American citizens, not illegal aliens, can be provided for at some point.

Mexico has laws protecting jobs for it's citizens. It's too bad the USA doesn't have them.
