Incredible!

As the $15 billion jobs bill advanced through Congress last week, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) said the measure included no verification mechanism to ensure that newly created jobs will be filled by legal U.S. workers.

FAIR also alleges that the bill, which was authored by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), does not prevent employers from claiming tax credits and exemptions if the workers they hire are illegal aliens.

The bill is a package of tax credits and exemptions for employers who create new jobs. On Feb. 23, five Republicans, including the newly elected Senator Scott Brown (R-Mass.), joined 57 Democrats in breaking the Republican filibuster, opening the way to the final vote.

Anything that Harry Reid is involved in is suspect especially when it comes to illegal aliens.

Harry Reid is in favor of illegal alien employment because there are thousands of jobs in casinos, and their accompaying infrastructure, such as hotels, motels, restaurants, and other tourist venues in Nevada, which pay very low wages.

Does your State have 100% E-verify for all of potential employees?

How many of you have written your State Legeslature demanding EV be used for all new hires in your State?

Its up to your State to inact EV, not Harry Reid.

BTW, as of today, only about 3-4 states have 100% Everify for all new hires.

The percentage of states requiring E-Verify is irrelevant. This federal bill should have required E-Verify to at least give the appearance of enforcing the law. Clearly, ensuring these funds are used to help legal workers is not the objective, nor a concern.

What has this to do with what I posted, and which you quoted? I was merely explaing why Harry Reid is in favor of illegal alien employment.
