    "One way to judge the likely effectiveness of Chairman Lamar Smith's national mandatory E-Verify bill is the panic it has caused among the nation's biggest promoters of illegal immigration. They attack Rep. Smith's bill because they say it will take the incomes away from large swaths of America's illegal population. Well, I guess that's the point isn't it, because those incomes will now go to unemployed American citizens and legal immigrants who already are here."

    I imagine it's not just "open borders" groups that are outraged. Businesses don't like it either.

    It is truly astounding how the left has universally declared any attempt to reign in the prevalence of illegal immigration, and all of the social ills that it brings.

    E-Verify is a common sense solution to ensuring that someone is legally able to work in the US. I live in GA and we just passed a bill--it is being proclaimed as the most sweeping immigration bill since Arizona-- that simply required businesses to E-Verify employees. Leftist organizations have come out of the woodwork decrying this as a return to Jim Crow.

    Republicans own the issues. The question is will the they capitalize on issues that are overwhelmingly favored by the American people?

    This is a non-issue, employers have been required by Federal law to establish the employment status of all new hires for well over 20 years.

    E-Verify is merely another tool used in the process.

    The only issue is whether the law is implemented consistently and due process is observed.

    For all the talk of "the left doesn't care about illegal immigration", it's very interesting that enforcement raids are actually way up during the Obama administration.

    As for the immigration bill in Georgia, the biggest howls aren't coming from the left. They're coming from growers who feel it's going to create a labor shortage.

    As someone from peach country (I haven't always been an Atlantan), you'd be shocked by the number of high school kids who work on the peach farms during the summer (though, it definitely isn't enough to meet the demand).

    Umm, fucktard.....

    Before 1965 we had open borders with Canada and Mexico , there was never a fucking problem.

    I am sure that Georgia farmers will eventually find a solution ....even if consumers will have to pay $100.00 for a fucking peach.
