Speaker Boehner Must Get Serious About Immigration Enforcement
Political leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives have been influenced by outside consultants into preventing H.R. 2885, the Legal Workforce Act, from receiving a floor vote in the House this fall. Their reasoning behind doing this is to keep Congress focused on restoring jobs, yet the Legal Workforce Act will open up nearly 7 million jobs for unemployed Americans and legal residents!
House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) cannot let this continue. The Legal Workforce Act represents the strong enforcement-based immigration policy that a majority of Americans have demanded for years, while also creating more job opportunities, the top issue facing the country today. The Speaker has a responsibility to give this outstanding bill the proper attention it deserves, without the political posturing that will keep it from advancing further. Send this critical message to Speaker Boehner today, urging him to do more to protect vulnerable American workers from cheap illegal labor. This is a completely free service. There is no cost to you.
|Dear Speaker Boehner, Please help to put millions of Americans back to work by pressuring Ways & Means Chairman Dave Camp to act on H.R. 2885, the Legal Workforce Act, a very important piece of job-creating legislation!
The Legal Workforce Act, introduced by Rep. Lamar Smith, will require all businesses to use E-Verify within 2 years. This important piece of legislation can quickly open up more than 7 million jobs currently held by illegal aliens for unemployed Americans.
The Legal Workforce Act requires the Social Security Administration to notify employees when their Social Security number is being used multiple times. This provision will dramatically reduce identity theft, while also helping millions of unemployed Americans find work by freeing up jobs currently held by illegal aliens.
Why are the Republicans on the Ways and Means Committee protecting jobs for illegal aliens instead of releasing the Legal Workforce Act for a vote on the floor? Don’t you want to put jobless Americans back to work?
Please support the Legal Workforce Act by pressuring Chairman Camp to bring it up for a vote. This bill would have an immediate impact on fighting identity theft and helping America’s unemployed!
