Another Amnesty? HR 2164 – This is a bad bill. Read article below.


Call Congress to block this bill.

Call Chairman Lamar Smith

On Tuesday, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-TX) introduced a bill (HR 2164) to require nationwide use of the E-Verify system, which checks a job applicant’s citizenship and immigration status, via the Internet, to see if he or she is eligible to work.

New bill hobbles border states

By KRIS W. KOBACH, June 16, 2011

The timing couldn’t be worse. The bill stabs Arizona in the back, just after it won a victory in the US Supreme Court in Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting on May 26. The court upheld the 2007 Legal Arizona Workers Act, which lets the state suspend the business licenses of employers who knowingly hire unauthorized aliens and requires employers to use E-Verify.

Now, the Smith bill threatens to tie the states’ hands in addressing the problem.

But now, the Smith bill threatens to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. The Arizona law — along with every other state law on the subject — would be preempted under the bill.

    WE NEED TO FOLLOW OUR LAWS OF ILLEGAL ENTRANCE INTO THIS COUNTRY AS A VIOLATION OF OUR IMMIGRATION ACTIONS… NO MORE AMNESTY LIKE PRESIDENT REAGAN SIGNED INTO LAW….AND WE NEVER STOPPED THIS ILLEGAL ENTRANCE LIKE IT WAS SUPPOSED TO DO. VIOLATIONS SHOULD HAVE BEEN PROCESSED AS THEY HAPPENED. THE E- VERIFY SHOULD HAVE BEEN ENFORCED A LONG TIME AGO…
