Support legal workers

OFIR members and supporters:

Numbers USA reports great news: Senator Jeff Sessions' amendment to extend E-Verify for another five years has made the cut of amendments that will be voted on before a final vote on the Omnibus Appropriations bill. Thursday, Senator Harry Reid blocked a vote on Sessions' amendment, but because the Senate was unable to get the 60 votes required to end the debate, he's been forced to open the bill back up. It is likely that Senator Session’s amendment 604 will be voted on Tuesday.

The E-Verify program is the most effective tool available for controlling illegal immigration. Along with building the border fence and stopping attempts to grant amnesty to illegal aliens, there is no other issue right now more critical to true immigration reform than extending the federal E-Verify program.

Call (202)224-3121 and ask for your Senator/Representatives office. E-Verify works, it simply allows employers to make sure that they are only hiring legal workers.

And please keep in mind that the comments about "it's not accurate" will be left by people who seem to think the government can't match a name and social security number but is perfectly capable of handing their retirement, health care and personal well-being.

The government needs to stay out of the free market. I called my Senators as did my family to tell them to vote "NO".

And there is not one but two Bills here in the House with Bi-Partisan support to make employers in Oregon use free, fast and accurate E-Verify to protect themselves from fines, jail and losing thier work force like Del Monte Fresh.

With high unemployment, this could pass this week and then it is time to call your local rep.

All OFIR members will get an e-mail when this happens.

Daniel, thanks for the heads up.

I called our senators in my state and they both said that e-Verify will not pass muster. There are too many Ds against it. Letting it be discusses is just enough to shut that anti-immigration crowd up. I think e-Verify is a waste of time. We need to keep the government out of the free market, I agree. The government is not your mama.

"need to keep illegal scumbags out of our free market."

Then arrest all the Republican scum and that should take care of it.

Anon 3:29: You've got it wrong, as usual. The illegal aliens in our country typically vote Dumocrat. I would have thought you knew that. But apparently you really are as dumb as your postings here make you out to be.
