    598,000 US Jobs Lost in Jan--Will They Go to Illegal Aliens?

    598,000 U.S. Jobs Lost in JAN -- Will Senate Today Go Through With Plan to Give Stimulus Jobs to Illegal Aliens?

    By Roy Beck, Friday, February 6, 2009, 9:10 AM

    The feds' monthly report was even worse than expected: 598,000 jobs cut in January. And, yet, Senate leaders have still not given permission for a vote on a Stimulus Bill amendment that would keep illegal foreign workers from getting jobs created by the massive taxpayer effort.

    How many Americans have to lose their jobs before they are given priority over illegal aliens and the outlaw companies that hire them?

    The government says employers slashed payrolls by 598,000 in January, the most since the end of 1974, catapulting the unemployment rate to 7.6 percent.

    The Labor Department's report is grim proof the nation's job climate is deteriorating at an alarming clip with no end in sight. Job losses were far worse than the 525,000 economists expected. So was the rise in the unemployment rate, now at the highest since September 1992.

    America's newspapers, for the most part, continue to do the work of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in protecting the hiring of illegal aliens instead of the rising armies of unemployed Americans. U.S. Today, right on queue in case the Senate does consider E-Verify today, ran an article entirely devoted stating the Chamber of Commerce's distortions of the E-Verify program as if they were fact.

    Violating every journalistic standard and ethic, the article didn't quote any supporters of E-Verify who would have given a totally different view.

    It carried the typical lie that E-Verify threatens to mis-identify legal residents as illegal aliens and erroneously ordering them fired.

    As I have noted preivously, NumbersUSA has issued the challenge to find even ONE case of such a thing happening after milions upon millions of transactions over the last 12 years. To date, not one has been produced. E-Verify is one of the most accurate programs ever run by the government.

    One of our staff phoned a pro-illegal-alien Senator this week to note the recent Heritage Foundation study that predicted the Stimulus Bill as written in the Senate would give about 300,000 new construction jobs to illegal aliens. The Senate staffer replied that, oh, no, that was not possible because it is illegal to hire illegal foreign workers.

    Oh, I need a lot of those uproarously laughing smiley faces on this line!

    Well, yes, it has been illegal to hire illegal aliens since 1986 when an amnesty brought our illegal population close to zero. But we now have an estimated 7.7 million illegal foreign workers in jobs. Obviously, simply saying something is illegal doesn't stop it.

    Requiring every government and business to run new hires through E-Verify is absolutely necessary if Americans and authorized immigrants already here are to get the new jobs being created as rather minor relief to monthly collapse of U.S. jobs.

    If the Senators decide to pass the Stimulus Bill, they have 598,000 more reasons today to include an E-Verify requirement.

    E-Verify all I-9 Immigration Forms at State Unemployment Offices in every State in the Country. This should be the first and most necessary step in stopping the invasion into America and the lost of jobs to the citizens of the United States.

    And then the Census is going to have to been attacked, next. We have our work cut out for us.

    Call the Senators today

    Action Alert: Your Pressure Needed Today to Allow E-Verify Amendment on Senate Floor

    Updated Friday, February 6, 2009, 6:00 AM

    The Senate will resume work on the Stimulus bill at 10 a.m. today. There remains an enormous fight in trying to allow a vote on an amendment that would require local governments and businesses to use E-Verify if they get Stimulus money.

    It is difficult to believe that Senate leaders will insist that illegal aliens have the same chance at new Stimulus jobs as unemployed Americans. But that may very well happen. Your action is needed first thing this morning to persuade Senators that they will humiliate themselves if this goes unaddressed.

    Sen. Sessions (R-Ala.) and Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) are making a bi-partisan push for unemployed Americans to make sure Stimulus Bill jobs go to them and not to illegal aliens. Even if the Senate ends up voting against unemployed American workers and in favor of sharing Stimulus jobs with illegal foreign workers, the American people deserve a vote to see which Senators chose which option. Call your Senator now and demand a vote (202-224-3121).

    There are several actions you can take to help get E-Verify on the Stimulus bill. Go to your Action Buffet NOW and fax your Senators urging them protect American workers. Please resume calling your Senators and President Obama at 8 a.m. EST Friday.
