Urgent Calls Needed for E-Verify Bill in FL Legislature

HB219 unanimously passed the Florida House Governmental Affairs Policy Committee on March 24, 2010.  HB219 contains a good E-Verify provision for public contractors and state agencies.  This would mean that State of Florida funds will be expended only if contractors and subcontractors to state agencies verify that their workers are legal.

The much wider scope private E-Verify bill, The Florida Citizen’s Employment Protection Act of 2010 proposed by FLIMEN, is unfortunately not politically feasible this year as demonstrated by a six month effort that failed to garner either a Senate or House sponsor. Nonetheless, HB219 is a good small step forward.

HB219 has one additional committee in the House and five committees in the Senate so it will be a daunting task to get the bill through committees and a full House and Senate vote prior to the end of the Session on April 30, 2010.  Because the bill is moving in the House the focus is now on Senate bill S1880, the companion bill to HB219.

Calls, faxes and emails are needed to urge that S1880 be fast-tracked in the Florida Senate:

Senate President Jeff Atwater:
Phone: (850) 487-5100, (954) 847-3518, (561) 625-5101, or (866) 757-1902
FAX:     (954) 847-3519 or (561) 625-5103
E-mail: atwater.jeff.web@flsenate.gov
Senate President Pro Tempore Mike Fasano:
Phone:  (727) 848-5885 or (850) 487-5062
FAX:      (727) 841-4453
E-mail:  fasano.mike.web@flsenate.gov

Talking Points:

  • S1880 (HB219) needs to be fast-tracked in the Florida Senate.
  • The bill ensures tax dollars are used to get Floridians back to work, not illegal workers.
  • E-Verify has proven in about 15 states to be business-friendly, easy to use, accurate, free to use, low cost to administer, and effective.

Time is running short so take action ASAP.  Successful enactment depends on YOUR ACTION!!

    Jobless American workers cannot understand the well-documented promotion of many groups assisting illegal aliens push for AMNESTY. Millions of American people have been forced into food banks, trying to save their homes or their only means of transportation from harassing creditors. Then there are all these organizations who should be fighting for its own countryman’s hiring, instead of keeping the borders unsecured. The ACLU ( Leon Levy Foundation, the Open Society Institute, Peter B. Lewis and John Sperling had stepped up with pledges totaling $23 million spread over the next three years.) These name’s link to the ACLU works daily to support immigration, especially of the illegal alien variety. The US Chamber of Commerce,corporate consortium organizations and even the quasi-government agency called The Council of Foreign Relations want the free flowing cheap labor?

    The 100.000 pro-amnesty protest last Sunday and in the last two months special interest groups have been conspiring in Public Relations build-up throughout this nation; backed by tens of millions of dollars. This money from George Soros (Socialist-Marxist Billionaire), Carnegie Foundation, Ford Foundation and the giant Service Employers International Unions. In 2001, David Gelbaum hedge fund manager and investor gave the Sierra Club a $101.5 million donation; although Carl Pope head of the Club, who said it didn’t affect their agenda, Gelbaum admitted: “I did tell Carl Pope in 1994 or 1995 that if they ever came out anti-immigration, they would never get a dollar from me…” I guess this is why the Sierra Club is completely silent to the mounds of trash stretching for miles, where illegal aliens break into our nation? Just goes to show the huge amounts of money laundered into the push for AMNESTY and dollars for politicians campaign contributions, that the average American cannot even comprehend.

    This mix is in collusion with La Raza (The Race) that is said to have a silent agenda of overrunning the Southwest, with prominently Spanish speaking people. LA RAZA, gets its donations from THE FORTUNE 500 companies, U.S. CHAMBER of COMMERCE (an obvious front for corporate interests) LA RAZA also gets donations from WELLS FARGO and BANK of AMERICA and the GOVERNMENT OF MEXICO (we are Mexico’s welfare benefits system) These groups have major money influences in the corridors of power, whereas the general public who want a permanent E-Verify has been ushered to the back. Only these entities, including politicians who see immigration as a wonderful virtue as promoters of greed, gain and profit. Under the push for a Comprehensive Immigration Reform or more honestly assessed as Amnesty, Homeland Security Napolitano has cut the budgets of the fence building (not that it was the two-layer barrier in the first place) or overall positive enforcement.

    Whereas, in the President Bush years this administration did not release illegal workers once caught, releasing significant numbers back in the workforce. All this lax enforcement seems to rising to a imminent crescendo of the possible Sen. Lindsey Graham, Sen. Chuck Schumer and Sen. John McCain apparent Amnesty resurrection? In any new reform Graham-Schumer want to substitute the E-Verify program, already grown in national business awareness for the National biometric ID card. E-Verify is a perfectly stabilized computer application, that is working in removing-some but not all illegal labor, which is gaining strength as it is modified.
    Currently 8 million illegal immigrant are employed, as approximated as being in the workplace. While 14.7 million citizens and legal residents remain unemployed Investigating the truth about the population explosion of illegal immigrants and families in the US, has been carefully manipulated in government reports. But12 million illegal foreigners doesn’t agree with the US Border Patrol in Tuscon.

    We have politicians that have intervened in making E-Verify permanently such as Harry Reid and majority Speaker Nancy Pelosi who are unlikely to be reelected. ONE THINGS FOR SURE, ANY KIND OF AMNESTY WILL BE DIFFICULT TO PASS IN THIS ECONOMIC ENVIRONMENT, EVEN AS THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE STILL RISES? THE PROTECTION OF EVERY US WORKERS JOB SHOULD BE FIRST ON ANY AGENDA, INCLUDING A HIGH LEVER OF NATIONAL SECURITY.

    This week the first evidence that the border states are in constant danger, when a Arizona Rancher was shot dead on his property near the Southwest border. Rob Krentz with his dog had been shot and killed and was found by an Arizona Public Safety helicopter. Authorities say they found footprints near Krentz’s vehicle and followed them to the U.S./Mexican border. .Phil Krentz said that the last time he spoke to Rob, he was responding to an injured illegal alien. The border region is becoming a battleground and it’s high time the Homeland Security Chief Napolitano issued orders for the NATIONAL GUARD, fully armed to keep US civilians safe from incursions of drug smugglers, illegal alien criminals and even terrorists. The US border Patrol, and scattered law enforcement is no longer enough to fight this spreading blood bath. Demand this today from our government lawmakers at 202-224-3121.
