    Congressmen Voice Opposition to Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants

    A group of 22 congressmen called on Congress on Thursday to reject amnesty for illegal immigrants and enforce employment restrictions on non-citizens.

    WASHINGTON -- A group of 22 congressmen called on Congress on Thursday to reject amnesty for illegal immigrants and enforce employment restrictions on non-citizens.

    The Bipartisan Reform of Immigration through Defining Good Enforcement Resolution, HR 1026, or BRIDGE resolution, outlines the key principles of immigration reform, the lawmakers said.

    Reps. Frank Kratovil, D-Md, Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah., Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., and Glenn Nye, D-Va., and 10 other Republican and eight other Democratic were co-sponsors in introducing the legislation.

    "Marylanders, including immigrants who have come here legally to live and work in our state, are tired of the drain that illegal immigration has put on our economy," Kratovil said through his communications director. "This resolution reflects my belief that we should honor the contributions of those who have come here legally and continue to play by the rules while punishing those that knowingly break our laws."

    The resolution calls for all employers to adopt E-Verify, a federally operated, Internet-based program that confirms the status of workers.

    yes yes but they still have tons of laws that they still do not enforce on immigration, what is one more? its not like they are actually going to enforce it....its an election year they are drumming up policies that are popular and when they get elected again it will go back to the top shelf.....I noticed some democrats lining up on that bill as well, funny how they want to work with rpubs when they are scared for their jobs...
