Easy enough to say. What’s your border enforcement strategy? How much are you willing to pay?

What about the impact that even more stringent border enforcement might have on our business dealings with our nation’s third-largest trading partner?

Illegal border crossings are far lower now than at any point in the recent past. Penalties for illegal aliens are more severe. Deportations are up sharply.

What more should be done, how much will it cost, how would you pay for it, and what will the social and economic consequences be?

Fighting for your jobs in 50 States, by using MANDATORY E-Verify?

The numbers of politicians enthusiastic by passing ‘THE LEGAL WORKFORCE ACT’ is rising, and now only needs 32 more of sponsors for its introduction to the House floor. This would have exceptional ramifications for the ailing job market, in rejecting illegal aliens and replacing them with citizens and legal diverse workers.  The numbers of politicians enthusiastic of passing ‘THE LEGAL WORKFORCE ACT’ is rising, and now only needs 32 more of sponsors for its introduction to the House floor. This would have exceptional ramifications for the ailing job market, in rejecting illegal aliens and replacing them with citizens and legal decisive workers. This is not a pogrom against any race or nationality; it’s not a witch hunt to stop Blacks, Hispanics, Europeans, and Pacific Islanders, Asian or other persons. It’s about keeping to the law, the ‘Rule of Law’ like aiding and abetting millions of illegal alien from every hemisphere across the world.

It’s about corruption in Washington from both parties to hire cheap labor and exploit it; it’s also about millions of votes in future years, to undermine fair and equal electoral laws. You have seen the outcome after the original amnesty of rampant fraud by business owners, who will be held liable for not implementing form I-9 and not running a electronic E-Verify process. E-Verify will become—MANDATORY—for every business and if not complying face harsh penalties. Hundreds of thousands at the Mandatory E-Verify enactment would promote rapid self-deportation, adding more jobs for Americans. Ice raids have shown in large companies, illegal migrants and immigrants fleeing and making room for different racial backgrounds lining up for those jobs.

Former Speaker Newt Gingrich would have American taxpayers keep supporting the millions still unlawfully in this country? The question to ask yourself, they already committed an offense against our laws by crossing the borders or being an over-stay visa. Then to obtain a job in the U.S. other than criminal businesses not bothering to verify their hired work verification, they had to use fraudulent Social Security cards, drivers licenses, birth certificates or some other form of ID—isn’t this a FELONY by definition? THEN WHY IS IT NOT A FELONY? IF YOU STOLE SOMEBODIES ID OR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER AND GOT CAUGHT, YOU WOULD BE IN JAIL.

Rep. John Duncan (R-Tenn.) is the latest cosponsored of House Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith’s Legal Workforce Act (H.R.2885). The bill would require 100% of businesses to begin using E-Verify for all new hires within 2 years and require all federal, state, and local governments to check new hires and existing employees within 6 months to name a few statuary laws. Although hundreds of companies now are using the E-Verification hiring process, it must be made permanent. Currently it needs heavy action by all patriotic Americans. This can be done by the voter contacting Washington 202-224-3121 and giving your name, address to the aid and insisting your representative in the Senate-House uphold the law and co-sponsor H.R. 2885. Don’t hesitate! Perform it now, as not only are thousands of jobs vanishing overseas, because of the stalemate in Congress, but people are still crossing borders or staying after their visa is expired. Don’t be fooled by the lies from the Leftists, who are concentrating with their lies that moderates are seeking all ethnic majorities be deported. Don’t listen to their lies that illegal aliens pay for their own financial support, that the majority pay taxes. Most states are in a terrible mess, specifically Sanctuary states like California, Nevada and flooded with foreigners, feeding of the crippled welfare system.

Rep. Duncan represents Tennessee’s 2nd Congressional District and is serving his 13th term in Congress. He has earned a career A-plus grade and has also cosponsored Rep. Steve King’s bill to end Birthright Citizenship and Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s bill to strengthen interior enforcement. Pregnant Mothers from other countries in numbers unsustainable of 300 thousand annually, which taxpayers are forced to outlay. NumbersUSA websiteis another way to communicate your demand for following the 1986 Immigration laws, be obliged to be held accountable for illegal hiring. Only the TEA PARTY, the American people of all party denominations, from every walk of life, wants an end to this growing deficit crisis. Illegal Immigration is fiscally hurting Arizona, Alabama, South Carolina, Utah, Indiana and all the rest of the 50 states, which are being drained in billions of dollars in federal non-funded mandates. Unless millions of patriotic Americans start communicating their fears, the worst is just across the horizon. We must build the—REAL—double fencing across the lower United States. We must enact the MANDATORY ‘Legal Workforce Act” Now.

I hear there is a reduction of illegal aliens entering illegally, but what about the real estimate of 20 million plus already squatting here. They say it costs 120 million dollars to capture illegal aliens, so have we already the cost to states and the federal government revenue payout to subsidize illegal immigrants? How about a nice round figure of 100 Billion dollars? Most dont pay taxes; those who come here quickly find a way to screw the welfare safety net. The most social welfare system is Mothers with babies, who immediately get public aid and states carry the costs.

Farmers and those giant agricultural factories, who hire illegal alien workers, pay nothing for the childrens schooling or families health care. YOU DO!
