JD Alexander’s immigration plan: No e-Verify for businesses

At long last, we know what the Senate’s tougher immigration crackdown bill may look like.

Sen. JD Alexander’s strike-all amendment to SB 2040 proposes taking away the burden of checking a person’s immigration status from employers, who would no longer be required to use the federal government’s e-Verify system or any other alternative on prospective hires.

The state, however, will have to use e-Verify on any public benefits applications, including on people looking through work in person at Florida’s workforce agencies.

And instead of checking a person’s immigration status after a conviction, Alexander’s amendment puts forth running a check after a person is arrested and booked. That could be troubling for law enforcement; police officers have said they fear such measures could deter undocumented immigrants from reporting crimes –- particularly when it comes to domestic violence.

Though he has not read Sen. Rene Garcia’s proposed changes to the bill, Alexander said after a budget meeting Tuesday morning that he would not support punishing businesses for hiring undocumented immigrants.

ARRIVING VERY SHORTLY?

E-Verify! E-Verify! E-Verify! Must be--MANDATED--by Federal law that identifies every Americans, old and new hires throughout America; rejecting illegal aliens from the workplace. This is ATTRITION BY ENFORCEMENT. Other enforcement tools to be enacted permanently such as Secure Communities, to fingerprint and process every alleged criminal by local police. All Americans should demand these immigration innovations from our Senators and Representatives. If they resent your interests and disregard you, then join the TEA PARTY, as they will enforce the 1986 Immigration law. Stop the growth of Government; lessen your taxes, specially the hundreds of billions of dollars being extorted from you, in supporting illegal aliens and the 300.000 foothold babies annually. Under the TEA PARTY ultimatum; No more amnesties, Dream Act, Sanctuary Cities and States, No more Chain Migration or Immigration Reforms of any kind.

TEA PARTY membership is rising by the tens of millions, which are becoming a positive power inside Washington.

IT SHOULD BE REMEMBERED THAT STATES THAT DO NOT AUTHOR BILLS TO HALT THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ALREADY SETTLED THERE, HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS WILL BE ON THEIR WAY FROM LESS HOSPITABLE STATES. AS FLORIDA STRIPPED ENFORCEMENT E-VERIFY FROM ITS POLICY, THEY TOO WILL BE INVADED BY THE ILLEGAL ECONOMIC POOR. JUST LIKE UTAH FLORIDA WILL HAVE TO HIRE MORE TEACHERS, MORE HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS, BUILD MORE PRISONS AND ADD MORE CASH TO THEIR WELFARE PROGRAMS TO SUBSIDIZE THE AVALANCHE OF MORE ILLEGAL ALIENS.

Oh! And here comes the (ACLU) American Communist Lawyers Union out of the rancid woodwork, full of Marxist and Anarchist believing we should pay for illegal aliens who come here?

One of our greatest deterrents is for American workers to become a "WHISTLE BLOWER" to identify illegal labor in your company’s domain. Then call ICE or even your Police Department. If not satisfied, leave a message with NumbersUSA as they have people in Washington.


Throw out every politician who condone the 20 million plus illegal aliens and expeditiously dispatch to the street every Governor, Mayor, Police Chief and every elected official and replace them with genuine patriotic American Tea Party activists. The TEA PARTY is all Americans and legally accepted resident. We are a nation of laws that President Obama and his Czarist retinue seem to not accept. Both Republican leaders and Democrats, with a sprinkling of hard core Liberals have failed us for decades. Call every State Representative and Washington, to stop this parody of our laws. Very urgent is we must be vigilant of illegal aliens voting in our elections. Four States election results were compromised in the previous midterm election.Ron Paul has just been determined as soft on Illegal immigration, according to his latest book. He has probably wrecked his chances in the eyes of Pro-Sovereignty members in NumbersUSA, the Tea Party and others. However Sen. Rand Paul in his letter to me, stated, " “I also believe that subsidizing something creates more of it, and I do not think the American taxpayer should be forced to pay for welfare, medical care and other expenses for illegal immigrants. I will work to stop those taxpayer funded benefits.”

See the truth and not lies at NumbersUSA website. Sanctuary states as California are screaming about 30.000 teachers being laid off, but if they were not flooded with millions of illegal invaders they wouldn’t have this almost unfathomable problem? How many other States have massive deficits like California, with a 26 billion dollar deep red ink? We will always take to our hearts newly arrived--LEGALLY PROCESSED highly skilled labor that will not be leeching welfare services. There will never, ever be a place in America who steals past poorly manned borders or on expired travel visas. Our nation has become a universal magnet for every economic migrant and immigrant worldwide, with free access to schools for their children and free meals at school, free health care, plus food stamps, fraudulent tax rebates, home care and every other conceivable benefit that States and the federal government offers.

I hope this would not lead to the violation of rights of immigrants. I mean if they entered the country legally they should be entitled to the same rights the citizens of the country enjoys.
