    RED ALERT MISSISSIPPI OUR BILL IN DANGER OF VETO!

    From our friends on the ground.

    All ALIPAC Activists please take immediate action.

    ---

    Mississippi Federation for Immigration Reform and Enforcement

    Post Office Box 55511
    Jackson, Mississippi 39296-5511
    601.894.2215

    On Tuesday, March 11th, SB 2988, a bill requiring all employers in the State of Mississippi to verify the legal status of their employees, was sent to Governor Barbour for his signature. As of today (Sunday), Governor Barbour has not signed the bill. SB 2988 passed the Senate 52-0, and overwhelmingly passed the House 112-8 (with 2 absent and/or not voting).

    Prior to his reelection last November, Governor Barbour ran radio ads vowing to crack down on illegal immigration in Mississippi, and he posted on his website "The State of Mississippi: Helping to Control our Borders" that still appears on his website (see below). However, since Governor Barbour's reelection, we have not heard one word from him about illegal immigration. The following is excerpted from Governor Barbour's website and reflects the intent of SB 2988:

    Enlisting Employers to Help Enforce Federal and State Immigration Laws

    Governor Barbour recognizes the need for the State of Mississippi to remain vigilant in ensuring that all state workers have the proper, legal documentation needed to work for the taxpayers of Mississippi. Governor Barbour has directed the Executive Directors of the State’s Departments and agencies to actively review the employment eligibility of its current and new employees to ensure they are in accordance with current federal and state law.

    The state can help make sure employers hire only legal workers by providing businesses with information about the legal status of workers. Under Governor Barbour’s leadership, the Department of Public Safety will work with employers by providing periodic status checks of employees through the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s National Crime Information Center.

    Tomorrow, Monday, March 17th, is the deadline for Governor Barbour to sign SB 2988. This is an urgent request that you light up the Governor's office switchboard tomorrow and demand that he live up to his campaign promises to crack down on illegal immigration and sign SB 2988! The Governor's phone numbers are 1-877-405-0733 or 601-359-3150.

    I called his office and left a message with a staffer. Let's all cross our fingers that he signs it!

    I called, too. I asked if he was going to sign it and she said we'd find out at 5 pm. That sounds pretty ominous!

    He's making a decision at 5pm Mississippi time.

    I told the lady that his website said he promised to crackdown on illigal immigration and that if he voted against it that it meant he lied. I told her that when the illegals that are on the move went to Mississippi and the schools and hospitals went belly up that I would appreciate it if they didn't request Federal Funding to bail them out. I also told her I would let all the illegals know that Mississippi wanted them to move there.
