LP: Bilbray and 51 Other Members of Congress Oppose Obama’s Postponement of E-Verify, Again

Washington, D.C. — Congressman Brian Bilbray, Chairman of the Immigration Reform Caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives, has recently sent President Barack Obama a letter, signed by 51 other members of Congress, regarding opposition to the Administration's postponement of the E-Verify program. In the letter, the members stated, "We oppose the Administration's decision to delay, for a third time, the requirement that federal contractors use E-Verify to confirm that new hires are eligible to work in the United States legally."

One would think this is a "no brainer." You need to complete an I-9 in order to be legally employed, what's wrong with e-verify?

What is worrisome are these so-called stimulus package jobs will be hijacked by people who don't belong in the United States. Let's face it, the jobs will be mostly in construction and other labor-intensive areas. I voted for Obama, but am 100% opposed to any loosening of our laws in order to appeal to the broad masses.

Need I repeat how sick I am of these pandering politicians???

I did as well, but only because I liked his foreign policy.


Other than that, Obama is, along with his wife, an attention-obsessed and cocky newbie who's probably trying to wait for the recession to end before putting forth another amnesty bill.

He seems no better than Kennedy, Reid, Pelosi and Bush when it comes to fixing the illegal immigration problem.

"Fixing" the illegal immigration problem? More like intensifying the illegal immigration problem.

I was an African-American who didnt vote for Obama. I voted for Bob Barr. I think he was the only presidential candidate who took border security and illegal immigration seriously.

The only "fix" we'll see to immigration problems is an amnesty bill.

How does rewarding criminal behavior fix the problem? We have gone down that road and it has only made it worse.
No. Crack down on all employers of illegals, land lords and anyone who aids them.

I don't know about depression. The economy is beginning to improve slightly but it'll likely be months before the recession ends.

Once the recession ends, Obama will likely pounce on the opportunity to demand that we need an amnesty bill to help our recovering economy. If so, I'd honestly like to see how he'll be justify such a thing when considering the trillions spent on bail-outs, the billions spent in Iraq and Afghanistan and the ever-growing national debt.
