Urge the Senate to Extend E-Verify
Last week the Department of Labor issued a grim report on the state of jobs in America. More than 500,000 Americans lost their job in November and more than 2 million so far in 2008. In response, House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Lamar Smith (R-Texas) issued a statement urging the Senate to pass a long-term extension of E-Verify. Take action now by calling and/or faxing your Senator and asking them to add an amendment to the auto industry bailout to attach H.R. 6633.
Just yesterday I went to a local fast food restraunt and they had the "this employer participates in E-Verify" sign on their door. That's a restraunt where your kids or my kids would have a chance at employment.
E-Verify is a voluntary program that allows employers to make sure they are only hiring LEGAL WORKERS.
Next year we will have a congress that won't care about American jobs being stolen, make those phone calls/faxes/emails today!!
