"Removing the problematic employment verification provision from the economic stimulus package will help unemployed Americans get back to work," said Caroline Fredrickson, the ACLU's top Washington lobbyist. "E-Verify is known to create significant delays in hiring new employees, a consequence our economy and American workers should not have to suffer in such difficult economic times."Right. We can't stand even a few days delay in getting people back to work, which is apparently why it took Obama four days to sign the bill. But this kind of story is typical of the entire illegal immigration debate, with the ACLU jumping into bed with the US Chamber of Commerce to defeat the provision.
The comments were pure gold, though:
These are not "undocumented workers". They are Illegal Immigrants! Calling them "undocumented workers" is like calling drug dealers "unlicensed pharmacists".True dat. The old saying "follow the money" will never see a better real-world example.
You have got to be kidding me! Verifying a legal US citizen should take less than ten minutes! The lengthy wait is for the illegals!!!!!
