    From Numbers USA

    HUGE VICTORIES in the States this week!

    Chris ChmielenskiCongress may be out of session, but what a few weeks it's been at the state level!!!

    In Indiana, the House and Senate completed work on an E-Verify bill late on Friday night. The bill requires state agencies and contractors to use E-Verify and also requires private businesses to use E-Verify if they want to deduct employee expenses from their state income taxes.

    In Alabama, both chambers have passed mandatory E-Verify legislation and were expected to work on a compromise bill before the devastating tornadoes caused the legislative session to be temporarily suspended. We'll continue to monitor the situation when state legislators feel the time is right to get back to work.

    In Montana, Gov. Schweitzer signed a bill toughening the state's requirements for obtaining a driver's license or state issued ID. Applicants will now have to show proof of citizenship, and driver's licenses from other states are excluded as a form of proof. The new law also requires anyone applying for state services to be verified through the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements program.

    In Colorado, a House Committee defeated a proposal that would extend in-state tuition benefits to illegal aliens who attended high school for at least three years and hold a diploma or GED. The bill was defeated for the fifth consecutive year.

    And in Florida, our activists SHUT DOWN THE GOVERNOR'S FAX MACHINE! I think Gov. Scott heard loud and clear that the legal residents of the Sunshine State want a mandatory E-Verify law to ensure new jobs go to legal workers. The State Senate will get back to work early next week on an E-Verify and enforcement bill, so be on the look out for action alerts this weekend if you live in Florida.

    Thanks to every single one of you that played some role in this week's victories! You sent 43,171 faxes this week, which may not sound like a lot, but the faxes were only directed at a few leaders in select states, so it's really a huge accomplishment.

    Join the discussion now that's taking place on our website. Let's keep the momentum going and bring it to the U.S. Congress when House and Senate Members return next week!

    Indiana & Alabama Legislatures Approve E-Verify Legislation
    Tuesday, April 19, 2011
    The Indiana House and both chambers of the Alabama legislature have approved legislation that would require businesses in the state to use E-Verify. The bill approved in Indiana is the tougher of the two, requiring most employers to check new hires through E-Verify, while the Alabama bill requires limited use of E-Verify.

    Visitor to our Earth Day booth 'shames' me for dishonoring my 'hippie' past -- but others cheer our existence

    Roy Beck

    By Roy Beck, Saturday, April 23, 2011

    One man loudly told me that I should be ashamed of myself for advocating U.S. population stabilization at an Earth Day festival -- and indicated that the founders of Earth Day were shamefully selfish if they advocated what NumbersUSA is advocating. But much more common at this Dallas event was a teacher who had her full class stand in our booth for me to give them a 10-minute population lecture about our "Wall charts."

    We Assess Cain & Trump and Find the Businessmen Lacking on Immigration
    Roy Beck

    By Roy Beck, Monday, April 25, 2011
    Successful businessmen Donald Trump and Herman Cain have attracted a lot of attention in their own ways because of their announced interest in running for President in 2012. Although some have been excited that one of these might provide real leadership on immigration, we haven't found much in which to place hope for that.
