Draft RNC platform demands mandatory E-verify, dropping lawsuits against states

A draft version of the Republican National Committee platform was briefly available Friday and, according to this version reposted by Politico, the party is reviving its hardline approach against immigration, demanding a national E-verify program be used by all businesses.

The issue could, however, revive bitter feuds within the agricultural community in Florida and elsewhere. The database compares employment information in the federal Homeland Security and Social Security system to determine the legal status of employees. However, the database is considered incomplete and employers complain it takes too long to determine verification.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott, who campaigned on a promise to require all businesses in Florida use the internet-based E-verify program, backed down from his promise in June, saying he preferred a national solution instead. Download Draft platform

The platform, which mirrors many of the provisions adopted by the Republican Party in 2008, also demands an end to the practice of cities providing sanctuary to illegal immigrants and demands an end to in-state tuition for illegal immigrant students at public universities.

According to the document, scheduled to be released and voted by delegates beginning Monday: "The pending Department of Justice lawsuits against Alabama, South Caroline, and Utah must be dismissed immediately. The double-layered fencing on the border that was enacted by Congress in 2006, but never completed, must finally be built. In order to restore the rule of law, federal funding should be denied to universitiese that provide in-state tuition rates to illegal aliens, in open defiance of federal law."

The draft was approved this week by members of the party's platform committee.

Enacting many laws under the Democrats, Liberals or Republicans will remain virtually impossible. As an Independent my vote is not going to President Obama and the only reason I am voting for Mitt Romney, is to insure more TEA PARTY LEADERS unseat all those in Congress. I think potential VP Paul Ryan is a good choice, as he is yet another TEA PARTY politician? Any new laws that make financial sense have never had any possibility of enough votes in the House of Representatives and certainly not the Senate, held in contempt of the will of the people. With a steel grip in the Senate, and constantly failing to reach cloture by arch Liberal incumbent Sen. Harry Reid whatever in the way of bills of any need, will never reach the floor.

Both political Parties need to be held accountable for not passing the ‘Legal Workforce bill’ or a crucial amendment known as the ‘Birthright Citizenship Law’. The TEA PARTY however has this initiative that if they affirm more authority and influence in the Republican Party, these two laws will find passage. Join the local TEA PARTY and cast your vote for MITT ROMNEY. By infiltrating the Republican Party the TEA PARTY will have overall influence to stop illegal immigration, open up more oil drilling areas, a fair tax code for everybody; stop Obama from allowing the United Nations from more influencing in American laws, lower the U.S. treasury 16 Trillion dollar deficit and many controversial issues.

In 1986 the political parties led by the late Ted Kennedy promised ‘PROMISED’ that there would never be another mass amnesty again. The law was signed by Ronald Reagan, but neither the parties kept their word to the American People. This happened mainly because the Democrats refused to appropriate the money, so the enforcement of businesses hiring cheap labor went nowhere.

Whether it’s Democrat, Liberal infestation or Republicans, I only hope either one does something for the most difficult issue facing America--illegal immigration. For me its overpopulation and the outrageous costs of illegal immigrants and the free benefits supplied to them. It’s the unfettered spread of concrete and glass, replacing farmland. The major cause is continuous illegal immigration into this country. Every year millions come here via the covert visa to work, with mediocre worker skill, but it enough experience for big corporate bosses. No saying we don’t need the most intelligent, and the highest skilled, carry the top credentials in their field and holding the experience of being a STEM? Those legal immigrants we can afford, but however millions have come here over the years, poorly educated, bringing the stigma of POVERTY. Annually it’s estimated that 400 thousand women smuggle fetuses into America, so that they can take advantage of free delivery of the child, schooling to K-12 and many other welfare programs. Strange as it may seem the county of Los Angeles releases this information to the public? City Manager Micheal Andronivich as far back as 2004 said illegal families were draining Los Angeles county treasury of billions.

Even today the ‘Sanctuary City is on the edge of insolvency, as billions of dollars are still being sapped by incompetent the Democratic-Liberal-Marxist Sacramento assembly who have been subsidizing illegal aliens for years and also ignoring the fact they are voting in elections. In California it’s for sure that picture ID will not be required to vote in the refuge state, but TEA PARTY referees will be overlooking the process for irregularities. In my thinking Ultra Liberal Jerry Brown only managed to win the gubernatorial race, as the state of California has poor election regulations and is congested with illegal aliens who voted unlawfully for him. Welfare benefits for the children of illegal immigrants cost America's largest county more than $600 million last year, up from $570 million in 2009. Total cost for illegal immigrants to county taxpayers" was more than $1.6 billion in 2010. The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) also looked at these kinds of expenses nationwide to get an idea of the burden to municipal governments at a time when many are grappling with budget shortfalls and massive unemployment. Now the Liberal Blue state of California assembly of Marxist incumbents is pressing for Drivers Licenses for the 4 to 5 Million illegal aliens squatting in the state? Does not the state already have its own scatterings of hit and runs, drunken drivers amongst the illegal foreigners? Don’t the California residents have a say in the controversial matter, when their lives are in peril, every day? Why in God’s Earth are we giving leniency to foreign nationals, when California has one of the largest shares of unemployment? Investigate the website of “Judicial Watch, American Patrol, Federation of American Immigration reform just to name a few that are anti-illegal alien and pro-sovereignty organizations.

The Federation for Immigration Reform (FAIR) reported that the expenditure of illegal immigration stands at about $113 billion a year—but still rising. Nearly half of that amount went toward state education costs, according to the study. Costs were physically higher in states with large illegal alien populace -- in California; the total annual outlay was nailed at $21.8 billion. Neither party are considering the hardship on the Taxpayer, the exception is the TEA PARTY. Many have gained admittance through elections in Texas, Indiana, throughout this nation and are gradually gaining influence and power. As for TEA PARTY members, they are literary in the millions—of every race, skin color, religion, even political party. The Reason they want change—a fair tax code for every single one of us. Becoming Independent of foreign oil, gas and reopening of coal mines; cutting away the waste of big government and its bloated course of the rules and regulations forced on businesses. So much needs to be undone including the huge power of the unions and the exorbitant pensions and retirement plans that must be reassessed. ObamaCare must be rescinded and something else adopted that doesn’t strain MediCare. Further, illegal aliens should not have access to citizen low income programs, welfare, food stamps that President Obama has just allocated. America is a rich country, but we just cannot be the uncompensated welfare state for the world?

If you want real change in this country, you need to join the TEA PARTY and end the unrelenting influence of the Democrats and Republicans. Connect with your local TEA PARTY to contain the illegal immigration invasion and press for the passage of mandatory THE LEGAL WORKFORCE ACT (H.R. 2885), prohibiting businesses to hire illegal foreign labor. Then the second bill and the hundred billion dollar payout that must come to an end; The BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP (H.R. 140) travesty that any unborn child slipped across the border, gets immediate citizenship. A simple amendment would end this, only permitting this right if one parent is already a citizenship.
