Tennessee immigration-enforcement legislation.
This affects and will affect your life.
We have several good immigration-enforcement bills filed in Tennessee. To get these passed, grass-roots action is needed immediately.
Three recently filed pairs of bills look especially good toward the objective of demagnetizing Tennessee to illegal immigration. I ask that Tennesseans immediately contact their state representative and state senator and tell them to co-sponsor and pass these bills.
Tennessee bills are filed as a pair, one in the state House and an identical one in the state Senate. They may be amended in either or both chambers.
We are concerned about fiscal notes that will be placed on the bills. Fiscal notes concern the costs of implementing a bill if it became law. The notes will not factor in the costs of illegal immigration and how much the state/we could save by demagnetizing to illegal immigration.
HB1378 (sponsor, state Rep. Joe Carr) -- SB1669 (sponsor, state Sen. Jim Tracy) -- the Tennessee Lawful Employment Act, to require that all employers use the federal E-Verify system in hiring

HB1379 (sponsor, Rep. Joe Carr) -- SB1325 (sponsor, Sen. Jack Johnson) -- the Eligibility Verification for Entitlements Act, to require use of the SAVE system to verify eligibility (including lawful status, as applicable) for public benefits and services

HB1380 (sponsor, Rep. Joe Carr) -- SB0780 (sponsor, Sen. Bill Ketron) -- the Lawful Immigration Enforcement Act, pertaining to law enforcement officers and immigration-law enforcement

The Heritage Foundation discovered that households headed by low-educated foreign workers, legal and illegal, typically receive three dollars in government benefits and services for each dollar of taxes they pay -- with most of the net cost borne by state and local governments. Given our current budget problems, taxpayers should not have to underwrite public services for illegal aliens.
A recent study by Northeastern University found that illegal aliens are gaining jobs while Americans are losing them. Many of these jobs are in construction. I have particular interest in the construction jobs because my father was an ironworker.
Many people are under the impression that Tennessee does not have a serious problem with illegal immigration. The truth is, for the past 15 years, illegal aliens have been flooding into the South. Any official estimate you hear is a big undercount. We saw this when I lived in Georgia and some of us began doing our own count, based on births in which Emergency Alien Medicaid (for illegal-alien mothers) was called down.
Many illegal aliens have left California and other states to come to the South. It is said that Georgia has as many illegal aliens as Arizona has. North Carolina has many as well. As the states around us demagnetize, illegal aliens are leaving those states for jobs and easier passage in Tennessee. We must act as well.
Find contact information for your state representative and state senator here:
Call their offices, and e-mail. You can leave your message with a staffer. Please include all the bill numbers above when you contact them. Include the HB and SB prefixes. And please contact the House and Senate leaders, particularly:
It's showtime. There is no elite. Take your place in the driver's seat.

Thank you for the great job of posting bills and associated links.
Hebrews 11:1, it is written, "For faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen."Jeremiah 29:11 - It is written, "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

According to Rep. Carr, HB1378, also known as the "Tennessee Lawful Employment Act", recently passed both the house and senate of the Tennessee General Assembly. The bill is now on its way to Governor Haslam for his signature....cannot we find an American capable and worthy of the trust? ...Why should we take the bread out of the mouths of our own children and give it to strangers?"
