Now that you have written your check and sent the IRS some of your hard earned money to help feed Barack Obamas regime heres a suggestion for what to do to fight back.
Get behind the effort to pass Republican Representative Lamar Smiths Legal Workforce Act (LWA) HR 2885. This bill would amend the Immigration and Nationality Act and order the Secretary of Homeland Security (DHS) to develop a system for determining the citizenship and work eligibility status of all alien workers.
As envisioned by Representative Smith this system would have DHS establish an employment eligibility verification system (EEVS), patterned after the E-Verify system.
Introduced on September 12, 2011 the LWA would require employers to be part of the process of constructing an EEVS for their workers by attesting, under penalty of perjury, that the individual in question is not an illegal alien.
To meet this responsibility, employers must obtain and record the individuals social security number and examine specified documents that would establish the individuals identity and employment authorization.
The bill also requires that the alien attest that he or she is a U.S. citizen or national, a lawful permanent resident, or an alien authorized to work in the United States.
The Texas Congressmans bill also provides for fines and or imprisonment for anyone knowingly using someone elses social security number or other identification. The LWA would use a reasonable timeline of between six months and two years to phase in employer compliance with the proposed regulations.
Moreover it requires verification for federal, state, or local government employees and certain employees who require a federal security clearance as well as certain employees assigned to work in the United States under a federal or state contract.
This is good law for Americans and honest immigrants

The bill is ridiculously flawed, as it invalidates the state crackdowns of Arizona, Alabama, South Carolina, etc, etc. And what if it becomes law, which it never will? Who do you trust more to crackdown on illegal alien workers, Barack Obama, or Sheriff Joe Arpaio?
