DEMOCRATS – THE WORKERS’ BEST FRIEND – NOT!!!

This was sent to me by a gentleman in Florida, but I have not idea of the author of the orginal document.  Read at your own risk

 
The evidence is everywhere you look. The country we grew up in has been lost forever. Please read below.

The following was taken from a Pat Buchanon column published in early March, 2009. I wish it could be read by everyone who voted for Obama and the Democrats, especially union members and people who are unemployed and hoping for a job as a result of the billions and billions of dollars for construction projects to be funded by the “Stimulus Package.”
As Buchanon explains, the Democrats have voted down a requirement that construction companies with Stimulus Package contracts must verify that their employees are US citizens or aliens legally in the country.
Verification could easily be done through online with a system called E-Verify. It simply verifies that a Social Security number is a real one rather than one made up by someone, most often an illegal alien. It has been up and running for over two years, so it originated in the Bush administration.
In 2008, E-Verify handled about 6.6 million inquiries by employers. It’s use has been and would continue to be voluntary, but, guess what, the Democrats just voted to kill E-Verify by refusing to continue to fund it.
Why? It’s a no brainer.
The Democrats are selling out American workers for long term, perhaps perpetual political power sustained by Hispanic voters. Their obvious objective is to maximize the number of illegal aliens having jobs in the US and, by doing so, maximize the number who will be living here when the Democrats give US citizenship to them (and you know that’s coming).

The following is by Mr. Buchanon:

In writing the $789 billion stimulus bill, Congress revealed that, for all its “Buy American” blather, it does not truly put America first. It does not believe that 10 million jobless Americans, in the country their fathers built, should receive any preference in hiring over12 million to 20 million illegal aliens who broke into this country and owe her no loyalty, allegiance or love.

The first paragraph of the front-page story in USA Today says it all. “Los Angeles — Tens of thousands of jobs created by the economic stimulus law could end up filled by illegal immigrants, particularly in big states like California where undocumented workers are heavily represented in construction, experts on both sides of the issue say.”

 

According to the Center for Immigration Studies, illegal aliens will take 300,000 of the 2 million construction jobs to be created by the stimulus bill. The CIS figure is based on Census Bureau estimates that 15 percent of all construction workers are illegal aliens or immigrants who are not authorized to work in the United States.

 

Robert Rector of Heritage Foundation concurs with the figures on the number of jobs Congress just voted to give to non-Americans.

 

 

“Without specific mechanisms to ensure that workers are U.S. citizens or legally authorized to work, it is likely that 15 percent of these workers, or 300,000, would be illegal immigrants.”

Other experts put the figure far higher than 15 percent, and certainly higher in California and other Southwestern states, where illegals tend to congregate.

In taking these jobs, illegals will be shouldering aside unemployed Americans. Yet Congress could have, with one vote, guaranteed that virtually every job paid for by U.S. taxpayers would go to U.S. workers.

How? By mandating that all beneficiaries of stimulus money use the E-Verify program of the Department of Homeland Security, which lets employers check the validity of the Social Security number of all new hires. E-Verify is available on a voluntary basis. It is simple, swift and easy to use.

Indeed, E-Verify is becoming standard operating procedure for U.S. businesses that wish to obey the law. According to NumbersUSA, U.S. businesses have used E-Verify in 3 million inquiries this year alone. That is almost half the total of 6.6 million inquiries for all of 2008 and five times the rate of use in 2007.

E-Verify is a smashing success with an accuracy rate of over 99 percent that holds out promise of a day when every employer in America will be able to ensure that every employee is an American or someone authorized to work here. At its rising rate of use, one-fourth to one-third of all new hires could soon be checked by E-Verify.

Isn’t this what we all want, what we have all sought — an easy, verifiable, non-intrusive, inexpensive way for businesses to assure that those they hire are in our country legally?

No, it is not. For Tuesday night, the Senate voted to strip away this protection of American workers from the unfair competition of illegal aliens.

The Senate voted 50 to 47 to end E-Verify in six months, when current funding runs out. Sen. Jeff Sessions’ proposal to give this successful program five more years was rejected 50 to 47.

Republicans and seven Democrats voted to save E-Verify. But only Democrats voted to kill it.
