Now that you have written your check and sent the IRS some of your hard earned money to help feed Barack Obama’s regime, here’s a suggestion for what to do to fight back.
Get behind the effort to pass Republican Congressman Lamar Smith’s Legal Workforce Act (LWA), HR 2885. This bill would amend the Immigration and Nationality Act and order the Secretary of Homeland Security (DHS) to develop a system for determining the citizenship and work eligibility status of all alien workers. As envisioned by Congressman Smith, this system would have DHS establish an employment eligibility verification system (EEVS), patterned after the E-Verify system.
Introduced on September 12, 2011, the LWA would require employers to be part of the process of constructing an EEVS for their workers by attesting, under penalty of perjury, that the individual in question is not an illegal alien. To meet this responsibility, employers must obtain and record the individual’s social security number and examine specified documents that would establish the individual’s identity and employment authorization. The bill also requires that the alien attest that he or she is a U.S. citizen or national, a lawful permanent resident, or an alien authorized to work in the United States.
The Texas Congressman’s bill also provides for fines and/or imprisonment for anyone who knowingly uses someone else’s social security number or other identification. The LWA would use a reasonable timeline of between six months and two years to phase in employer compliance with the proposed regulations.
Moreover, it requires verification for federal, state, or local government employees and certain employees who require a federal security clearance as well as certain employees assigned to work in the United States under a federal or state contract.
This is a good law for Americans and honest immigrants. Once enacted, it would ensure that all workers are legal workers. It would put the weight of law behind honest employers who want to verify the status of their workers.
Smith’s law would require the Social Security Administration to notify the owner of a Social Security number when they discover that said number is being used by another person and tell employers when it finds multiple use of a number.
Merely putting this law to work for us could free up countless jobs and put our economy on the fast track to recovery from the damage Obama has done. If your representative has not joined the list of co-sponsors, get his or her office on the phone and demand to know why. We have a country to save.
