    I heard a provision to prevent this problem was stripped from the bill. Why? Who would do that?

    The House proposed using "E-Verify", but it isn't listed in the Senate bill. As it now stands, 300,000 new jobs would go to legal and illegal aliens.


    Charlotte Front and Center: Stimulus Bill on Life Support

    A watchdog group warns that illegal immigrants might end up filling many of the estimated 2 million-plus new construction jobs featured in the Senate stimulus bill.

    The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) estimates that about 15 percent of workers employed in construction in the United States are illegal immigrants. If no effort is made to bar illegal immigrants from these vital jobs, it is extremely likely that about 300,000 of the coveted jobs will go to them.

    “If more people know Congress was going to let illegal aliens get these jobs, there would be even less support for the bill,”

    I think that number is low. The ACLU or some illegal immigrants rights group should look into this.... Atleast half of the construction jobs should go to illegals especially since Americans don't want to do these jobs....

    Sealybobo, do you understand politics. The illegals could be a great voting base. Especially to a party that caters to the poor and low wage earners. You see why Bush and McCain try to cater for them the last couple of years. Just like the banks are replacing American workers with low-wage foreigners. Outsource to India. Microsoft did it.

    Everyone who voted for Obama and the D's controling Congress are getting exactly what they voted for. This country is on its way to hell in a hand basket. This is only the beginning. The damage that they are doing will not be able to be undone in most of our lifetimes, and our children are going to pay the price. It's extremely difficult and sad to watch.

    because the e-verify program doesn't work well. It can actually end up preventing legal residents from working, keeping them tied up in red tape. And the point of the stimulus is to get people back to work.

    where in the world does the 1 in 7 figure come from?

    1 in 7 more likely the number of errors in the e-verify system.

    That's what comes from being a true kool aid drinker, sealybobo could only ever see one side of the story and he swallowed it hook line and sinker.
