    Enforcing Current Immigration Laws Will Recover Eight Millio

    Enforcing Current Immigration Laws Will Recover Eight Million Jobs for Legal Workers

    Targeted News Service
    December 3, 2009
    WASHINGTON, D.C.

    Rep. Rodney M. Alexander, R-La. (5th CD), issued the following news release:

    U.S. Rep. Rodney Alexander, R-Quitman, today urged President Obama once again to aid American workers by recovering the eight million jobs held by illegal immigrants in the United States.

    The White House Forum on Jobs and Economic Growth is scheduled to begin this afternoon, and so far, any discussion regarding the millions of jobs occupied by illegal immigrants is not on the agenda.

    In response to the administration's oversight of this matter, especially after the unemployment rate has climbed above 10 percent, Alexander issued the following remarks:

    "By simply enforcing immigration laws, eight million jobs could be created for American citizens and legal immigrants," said Alexander.

    "Our nation continues to struggle during this tough economic climate, and 15.1 million Americans are now out of work. Any actions that will recover jobs for legal workers must be taken. Utilizing worksite enforcement is one way to get this done.

    "For instance, each time the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) conducts a worksite enforcement action, an opportunity is produced for legal workers to gain jobs that are held by illegal immigrants. Unfortunately, statistics from ICE reveal significant drops in worksite enforcement activity in the past year.

    "As American jobs continue to disappear at an alarming rate, the federal government must enforce current immigration laws to the best of its ability. We must do what we can to ensure America gets back to work."

    Last month, Alexander and 21 other Members of Congress sent a letter to President Obama in response to his call for job-creation suggestions. In this letter, the members recommended the enforcement of current immigration laws to open up jobs for legal workers.

    Alexander continued, "A dialogue of how to take back the eight million jobs currently held by illegal immigrants is pertinent to any meeting where job creation is the focus. The White House jobs summit must include this crucial debate so real recovery can finally begin."

    Well at least 22 members of Congress are smart enough to make the connection. That means only 513 should be convinced to see the light.

    ACTION ALERT!: Please help Alexandar and these other 21 intelligent Representatives --

    Send FREE FAXES directly to your Congressional representatives through the below two sites about the effects of immigration, both legal and illegal, on U.S. citizen workers and their families:

    Every Congressperson needs to support the Save Act and demand deportation of illegal aliens or be shown the door in 2010.

    Feasability

    Is there a practical way to remove 8 million illegal immigrant workers from their current jobs? For example, say there are 10,000 ICE officers(I tried looking to see how many there are but was unsuccessful), and they need to get rid of 8 million individuals spread out all over the country. To me, it just doesn't seem logistically possible. Any thoughts?

    Welcome, Lstudent.

    Sure there is! With acts like 287(g), SAVE and E-Verify, ICE agents will be supplemented by local law enforcement and employers refusing to retain or hire illegals (if the employers have the backbone to put country before making a profit.) The American people need to stand up and make their preferences known to our Congresscritters, as the upcoming elections will ring as our acceptance or rejection of legislators' decisions.
    There is very little that the American people have not been able to accomplish when they have the determination to do so. Eight million is not a big problem, as they and their families will cost us much, much more than just a deportation process.

    Exactly! And if we need more temporary manpower to get it done, then local law enforcement, especially the Sheriffs Departments, can deputize citizens to help out, for a small stipend if not for free as volunteers to do the leg work, research, fact-finding, handle tips and what not, for the warrants which are then served and handled by fully trained full time police officers with perhaps some trained Deputy Citizens assisting with the arrest, logistics and processing.

    We can do this. It's not valid to claim or believe otherwise.

    Two of those methods listed, "Employers refusing to retain or hire illegals" and "local law enforcement" are not likely to be uniform in their actions. For example, I live in Nassau County, New York. Recently, the police commissioner stated that they do not participate in enforcing the immigration laws because, by doing so, it negatively impacts their ability to carry out effective law enforcement. Concretely, the Commissioner stated that if the local police force enforced the immigration laws, the whole immigrant community(legal and illegal) will not cooperate with Law Enforcement in criminal investigations. Therefore, the community would be put at risk because criminals(not the border-crossing types) will be more difficult to apprehend.

    The employer part is difficult, because, as you said, profit very well may come before "country".

    So, it is safe to assume that many local law enforcement agencies will not cooperate with federal ICE authorities. Do you suggest local law enforcement be mandated to comply?

    Not if you're deporting them, Lstudent. if we're using our resources to deport them, crime will go down because they aren't here to commit them. If they're committing crimes against their own illegal alien community, well, that's a shame, but it's not our job to underwrite law enforcement protecting illegal aliens. We're supposed to use our funds to enforce US immigration law and deport illegal aliens.

    We've heard all these phony reasons why law enforcement in some cities don't want to enforce US immigration law, these are "sanctuary cities" operating in direct violation of US immigration, US labor and US civil rights laws.

    Our law enforcement has 1 primary jurisdiction with regards to illegal aliens and that is to deport them and then prosecute their citizen and immigrant aiders and abetters, smugglers and employers, advocates and promoters.
