Americans want to cut immigration. The polls show this. Any immigration bill coming out of the House has to make deep cuts in immigration numbers next year and 10 years from now.”
I am glad that you voted against the Goodlatte-Ryan-Denham amnesty. This bill would have only rewarded illegal aliens and exacerbated our nation’s illegal immigration problem. Instead of learning from the mistakes of the 1986 amnesty, this bill would have repeated its mistakes by guaranteeing an amnesty for illegal aliens but only promising border security and enforcement.
I hope I can count on you to support legislation that requires all employers to use E-Verify. With 15 million Americans unable to find a full-time job and millions more suffering from the ramifications of a stolen identity, passing E-Verify is the single best action you can take to end illegal hiring and turn off the jobs magnet.
Despite the fact that Republicans campaigned against amnesty and for putting the interests of American workers first, a small group of Republicans is attempting to force the Republican Conference to violate their campaign promises in the middle of a border crisis.
In October of last year, the White House issued an extensive list of immigration principles. Among those principles were ending chain migration, mandating the use of E-Verify, fixing unaccompanied alien children and asylum loopholes, ending sanctuary cities, and improving interior enforcement. The President stated:
Please oppose the Ryan Amnesty plan.
Why is the Ryan Amnesty plan so bad?
Please do not sign Discharge Petition for H.Res.774
On this 49th Earth Day, the population of our country has passed 327 million … with no upper limit in sight.
E-Verify can act as a major deterrent for future illegal immigration. As long as employers are able to hire illegal workers, foreign nationals will continue to attempt to enter the country illegally, either through illegal border crossings or overstaying a visa.
