Government's failure to enforce immigration laws protecting our borders has resulted in the loss of an estimated seven million non-agricultural jobs to illegal workers in America.
Thousands of American jobs have been outsourced overseas and about 700,000 jobs lost to Mexico since the 1996 passage of NAFTA (Economic Policy Institute 2011 statistic).
In the Senate, S744 would grant millions of non-citizens work permits plus grant millions of illegal immigrants amnesty. In 1986, 3 million people were granted amnesty and laws created to prevent further border violations. These laws, including sanctioning employers hiring illegal workers, were not enforced.
With 11 million immigrants here illegally, what could prove more conclusively that amnesty fails?
If you agree S744 is not what we need to make a strong America, contact Sens. Dan Coats and Joe Donnelly. Insist on enforcement of immigration laws. Visit www.senate.gov or call (888) 978-3094.
