This is a Caucus that recognizes that millions of Americans could be put back to work for almost no cost simply by enforcing the law. Thus far, Congress has been paralyzed over whether to go further into deep debt to try to create new jobs. But the at least 8 million jobs held by illegal aliens offer an alternative that is easy on the budget.

Listen to the way the Caucus describes itself and its mission -- aren't you ready for some politicians who take unemployment seriously enough to say these things?
There are more than eight million illegal immigrants in the labor force in the United States. In many states, there are almost as many illegal immigrants in the labor force as there are unemployed workers.

Lamar Smith of Texas, Gary Miller of California and Sue Myrick of North Carolina have formed the Reclaim American Jobs Caucus to:

raise public awareness of the connection between illegal immigration and unemployment,

pressure the Administration to vigorously enforce the laws against the employment of illegal immigrants,
work to implement legislation that will protect American jobs from the impact of illegal immigration (especially to make E-Verify mandatory),

work to defeat legislation that will put American jobs at risk from the impact of illegal immigration (especially to defeat amnesty).

Let's build this Caucus into a force so that even the news media will have to report that some people think Americans should have jobs before illegal alien.

Looks like 27 Congressmen are already on board - if you google the "Reclaim American Jobs Caucus" you can see a list of the Reps - if yours isn't among them, fax and/or email something like this:

Congress.org - : Letter to Rep. Zack Space (D-Ohio): The Reclaim American Jobs Caucus
