"Obama drops rule aimed at immigrants' bosses"

Quote
(10-08) 13:50 PDT SAN FRANCISCO -- The Obama administration has repealed a rule that would have threatened employers with prosecution unless they fired workers whose Social Security numbers did not match entries in a government database, ending a two-year battle in a San Francisco federal court.

Instead of no-match they want E-Verify.  I've read about some of the proposed changes to E-Verify, and they just don't make sense.

But the Federation for American Immigration Reform, which supports restrictions on immigration, said the government has found that E-Verify is accurate in 99.6 percent of cases. The group criticized the House-Senate conference committee for refusing to make the program permanent.

The three-year extension is "further evidence of the Obama administration's and the congressional leadership's effort to raise a smokescreen while it dismantles all effective controls against illegal immigration," the organization said.

...

The rule would have given employees three months to clear up any differences between the Social Security numbers they gave to employers and the numbers in the Social Security Administration database. After that, an employer who failed to fire the worker would be subject to civil fines and criminal prosecution.

"The no-match program was a flawed and ineffective enforcement tool that would have hurt U.S. citizens and other authorized workers," said Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO.

Illegal aliens counted in the census mean more Representatives in the House, more political power in areas where those counted cannot vote.

Skewed power in the house.  Why not just bus/fly in millions and get more House Representatives? 

How many more House seats would a state like RI get if they imported say 10 million illegals for the census?

FAIR Slams Administration and Congressional Leadership for Rejecting Permanent Reauthorization of E-Verify

WASHINGTON, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- House-Senate conferees finalizing the Homeland Security Appropriations bill yesterday undermined the long-term security of American workers by removing language that would have made the E-Verify program permanent. Instead, the conference agreement limits reauthorization to just three years.

...

The decision to extend E-Verify for only three years is further evidence of the Obama administration's and the congressional leadership's effort to raise a smokescreen while it dismantles all effective controls against illegal immigration, charged the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).


Quote
Conferees also stripped other safeguards in the Senate bill that were intended to protect American workers from losing jobs to illegal aliens. These provisions included a requirement that federal contractors use E-Verify to determine the employment eligibility of new and existing employees working on federal contracts, and language to prevent the repeal of a rule that required employers to take action upon the receipt of "no-match" letters, issued to employers whose workers' Social Security data cannot be confirmed. A third provision would have ensured all employers can use E-Verify to determine employment eligibility of existing workers in addition to new hires.


No checking existing employees?

Quote
"A three-year extension of E-Verify was the bare minimum this administration and the congressional leadership could support and still make any credible claim that they are prepared to enforce U.S. immigration laws," said Dan Stein, president of FAIR. "All that would have been required to make E-Verify a permanent federal program is for conferees to have adopted provisions that were already part of the Senate bill. The fact that they did not speaks volumes about the priorities of this Congress and the Obama administration."

Quote
"Unfortunately, at a time when American workers most need the full commitment of their government to protect their jobs, what they got was a half-hearted gesture. E-Verify is the real meat and potatoes of worksite enforcement and dries up the jobs magnet which is the reason illegal aliens come and the reason they stay. The program offers a meaningful solution to our immigration crisis and needs a permanent reauthorization, not a temporary stay of execution. The Obama administration and congressional leaders demonstrated, once again, that their goal is to minimize the enforcement of laws against illegal immigration," concluded Stein.

Are illegal aliens counted in the census help get politicians elected and keep them in office?

No jobs for Americans.  Just for people here illegally - it seems to help some states get more House seats and other political considerations based on census population.
