30 Members of Congress form the Reclaim American Jobs Caucus: free up jobs through immigration enforcement
...By simply enforcing immigration laws already on the books, we could create job opportunities for American citizens and immigrants who played by the rules to enter the U.S. Instead, the Obama administration has all but abandoned worksite enforcement efforts. In the past year alone, administrative arrests fell by 68 percent; the number of criminal arrests fell by 60 percent; the number of criminal indictments fell by 58 percent; and the number of criminal convictions fell by 63 percent. This is unacceptable and is an insult to unemployed and underemployed American workers.
Recognizing the direct link between unemployment and illegal immigration, we have formed the Reclaim American Jobs Caucus. Comprised of 30 members of Congress, we are dedicated to promoting policies that will help citizens and legal immigrants reclaim the eight million jobs held by illegal immigrants. Specifically, the Caucus seeks to expand use of the E-Verify system that allows employers to validate the eligibility of new hires, enforce workplace immigration laws, encourage attrition through enforcement, and oppose policies that encourage illegal immigration...
The best way to encourage immigration enforcement is to make it difficult for politicians to be on the other side, whether actively or passively. If most politicians realized that not supporting real enforcement would have an impact on their political careers the problem could be solved over time. And, the best way to get their attention is to ask politicians tough questions about immigration on video. Street protests are largely useless, even if they make some people feel better. Voting only goes so far. But, embarrassing a politician on a video that hundreds of thousands of people might see by exposing their lies or their flaws in their policies would be very effective and would send a message to the others.
