Committee Approves Legal Workforce Act

Post by gigichicago on Thu Sep 22, 2011 11:44 am

Too many illegals are taking away jobs from Americans. Seven million people are working illegally is a very large population to ignore.

Committee Approves Legal Workforce Act

Washington, DC – The House Judiciary Committee today approved the Legal Workforce Act (H.R. 2885), a bill that could open up millions of jobs for unemployed American workers by requiring all U.S. employers to use E-Verify. The bill was reported favorably to the House floor by a vote of 22-13.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas), the bill’s primary sponsor, today praised the Committee vote.

Chairman Smith: “Twenty-three million Americans are unemployed or can’t find full-time work. At the same time, seven million people are working illegally. These jobs should go to American citizens and legal workers. The unemployment rate in the black community is 17% and among Hispanics it’s 11%. Anyone who cares about helping unemployed Americans should care about opening up jobs for them.

“E-Verify allows employers to electronically verify that newly-hired employees are authorized to work in the U.S. The program is free, quick and easy to use. Nearly 300,000 American employers voluntarily use E-Verify and over 1,000 new businesses sign up every week.

“The Legal Workforce Act could open up millions of jobs for unemployed Americans by requiring employers to use E-Verify. It makes no sense to rely on the paper-based, error-prone I-9 system when a successful, web-based program is available. Today it takes an unemployed American nine months to find a job. With E-Verify, we can open up a new job in one to two minutes.”

Sorry to say this but it's time we had a program like E-Verify. Better late than never.
