Real I.D. Scuttled by Obama / DHS Sec. Napolitano

Against the recommendations of the 911 Commission, Napolitano and Obama attempt to scuttle the Real I.D. program!!

Help Save Maryland Newsletter

On Friday, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) sent out this disturbing message regarding actions taken by House Democrats to kill amendments which would have extended the federal E-Verify Program. E-Verify is an effective federal program for screening the work authorization of new and current hires. It is being used by a growing number of employers to ensure that American jobs go to American workers.

Three Democrats - Rep. David Price, Rep Davis Obey and Rep Debbie Wasserman-Schultz worked hard to kill the amendments. Time for Help Save Maryland members to work hard by making calls to the offices of these 3 anti-American worker elected officials to let them know citizens are opposed to their actions.

See the e-mail from FAIR below. If you are not already a member of FAIR I strongly suggest you join today.

Earlier Today, House Appropriators Rejected E-Verify Amendments; Reps. Price, Obey, and Wasserman-Schultz Spoke Against These ProvisionsEarlier this morning, the House Appropriations Committee met to write the annual Homeland Security spending bill and the annual bill that funds Congress for the coming year. At the "mark-up," the Committee rejected two E-Verify related amendments to the Homeland Security bill and another related to the Legislative Branch spending bill. E-Verify is an electronically operated system that ensures American jobs go to American workers by allowing employers to quickly check the work authorization status of their new hires.

Rep. Ken Calvert (R-CA) - a true immigration reformer - offered an amendment to the Homeland Security bill to extend E-Verify. While that bill already contains a short, two-year reauthorization of E-Verify, Congressman Calvert knows the true value of the program and sought a longer extension of E-Verify. After Calvert spoke in support of his amendment, Appropriations Homeland Security Subcommittee Chairman, Rep. David Price (D-NC), spoke against the amendment. Rep. Price urged the entire Committee to vote against the amendment. Then, the Committee Chairman, Rep. David Obey (D-WI), spoke against the amendment, as well. Obey argued that the Homeland Security spending bill shouldn't contain an E-Verify authorization at all!

Immediately following the rejection of the Calvert Amendment, another true immigration reformer - Representative Jack Kingston (R-GA) - offered an amendment to the Homeland Security bill to require companies who contract with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to use E-Verify. This common sense amendment would have ensured that contractors who do business with DHS - the same agency tasked with enforcing our immigration laws - do not hire illegal aliens.

Congressman Price AGAIN spoke in opposition to the Kingston amendment, erroneously claiming that E-Verify is inaccurate and that the program would be unable to handle the expansion to DHS contractors. Even though Congressman Kingston pointed out that DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano stated last month that the program could indeed handle a large-scale expansion, and that the program has an incredible accuracy rate of 99.6%, the House Appropriations Committee still rejected the amendment!

Later in the morning, Congressman Kingston attempted to attach a similar E-Verify amendment to the Legislative Branch spending bill. This provision would have required contractors who do business with the U.S. Congress to use E-Verify. This time, Appropriations Legislative Branch Subcommittee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) urged the Committee to reject the Kingston Amendment.
In speaking out against these amendments, Reps. Price, Obey, and Wasserman-Schultz effectively urged their colleagues to not only put the E-Verify program in jeopardy, but also ensure that illegal aliens can continue to work on federal contracts with DHS and the U.S. Congress!

We need you to call the following Members of Congress who spoke against E-Verify TODAY:

Rep. David Price: (202) 225-1784Rep. David Obey: (202) 225-3365Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz: (202) 225-7931

Tell these Members that they need to get their facts straight. Tell them:

14.5 million Americans are out of work and millions more are underemployed.

Americans, not illegal aliens, should be hired for any available jobs.
E-Verify is highly effective, and it works to protect American jobs!!!

Congress needs to start standing up for American workers, and not special interests!!

Also, please call Rep. Calvert and Rep. Kingston, and thank them for standing up on behalf of American Workers!

Rep. Ken Calvert: (202) 225-1986Rep. Jack Kingston: (202) 225-5831

They need to tell the absolute truth and lay out the facts about illegal immigration, not distorted propaganda. First we are talking about illegal immigration not--LEGAL--not just anybody who illegally sneaks across a purposely open border. If Americans want to uncover the real truth, they need to go in such websites as NUMBERSUSA, JUDICIALWATCH, CAPSWEB, UNIPAC. To read about the illegal alien criminal activities and ominous news AMERICAN PATROL will open all eyes? You will--NOT--find the honest facts about the illegal immigration invasion in most press releases as its generally hidden from the public. Even our government doesn't inform the American worker of the facts?

For years they have estimated that 11 million are here and taken jobs legal labor won't do. READ ABOUT CHAIN MIGRATION, sponsored families moving here that--YOU--eventually pay for. Learn that the border fence is not the true length, that it's limited because of intentional underfunded and single tier. Learn about the true cost in supporting the legal and illegal immigrants. Learn about the deceptive guest worker programs, engineered by unscrupulous attorneys. Learn about the rampant criminal activities that has been spiraling, that our police cannot control. Read about the politicians who are open border, free traders who want no limit on immigrants of any kind--and should be ejected from public office.

The truth is that illegal immigrants have filtered into white and blue collar jobs. They are managers, roofer's and many jobs that Americans--WILL DO-- and now are numbering around 20 million plus. These anti-illegal immigration, pro-sovereignty, overpopulation organization--ARE NOT--financially backed by the business world, but by ordinary people? Yet pro-illegal immigration, even radical groups are backed with grants, appropriated from you the taxpayer or from private foundations like Ford. Even our own politicians have conspired against the jobless American worker and families, by giving grants to all these anti-sovereignty participants.

Enforce the 1986 Simpson/Mazzoli bill, the Immigration Reform & Control Act as enacted. Offer your support to Rep.Shuler (D-NC) on his website. Phone: 828-252-1651 and Senator Sessions (R-AL) (256) 533-0979
The majority party in office are confederates that include Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) Homeland Security Chief Napolitano and a cesspool of legislators have triumphed in reducing the influence of E-Verify, Real ID Act and police enforcement and detainment law (287(g) to arrest illegal aliens and criminals. Senator Sessions and in addition Rep.Shuler, the author of E-Verify and the revised Save Act have a unceasing battle coming.
