Craig pushes immigration reform Senator predicts millions will lose jobs after Social Security crackdown. By Dan Popkey - firstname.lastname@example.org Edition Date: 08/10/07 Pressure to pass immigration reform will intensify as millions of undocumented workers lose jobs as a result of a crackdown by the Social Security Administration, Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho, said Thursday. "What will happen over the course of the next two months is several million workers will be laid off or fired and there is no one to take their place," Craig told the Boise Rotary Club.

US Senator Larry Craig (R) told the Idaho Statesman he will decide by mid-September whether he will retire next year or seek another term. Craig has sounded like a possible retiree.... a "Draft Craig" group encouraging people to write the Senator and urge him to run for re-elction. Those who know Craig say they believe the postcards could help tip the balance in favor of running again.
Send him your card urging the jerk to retire.
Let’s just hope that he and his thoughts are confined to the audience at the Boise Rotary Club. But as far as the rest of the country, Congress heard us last month!

I don’t get this. Yes, it’s possible that a number of illegal workers will lose their jobs and have to be replaced. But they were illegal in the first place.
American business can and will adapt to the short-term problems of hiring and training new workers. To say that this is bad news because it inconveniences business and illegal workers boggles the mind.
The politicians in Washington don’t bat an eye at the myriad government regulations they create that cause headaches for business owners. Why are they oh so concerned that they won’t be able to hire new legal workers?????
Donât for get to send him a note. I just emailed him as follows(no I am not one of his constituents bu that does not make a difference. “I read where post card might cause you to reconsider retirement. Please retire since you are still trying to bring in 60,000,000 Mexicans and provide a path to citizenship for them. We do not need any more Republican Senators trying to destroy this country. You are not needed. Also they will surely catch you buggering somebody in a railroad train station which will cause no end of embarrassment to the party and to you so that is another reason why you should retire.”
Dear Senator Craig:
That's sorta the point, you jackass!
Someone needs to melt his phone again.
The only way I would support drafting Craig is if it included boot camp and a trip to Iraq.
Let’s get these people registered. When registered, make it so they can NEVER vote in any election until they leave the country and come through the LEGAL way. If they just want to work her, fine, but register them in a database to NOT BE ABLE TO VOTE.
If they are registered, and they stay, they must sign on for health care if they get hired by anybody.
Illegal alien criminals and gang members — deport them by ship to Vera Cruz just like Ike did in 1958.
For the ones that DON’T register — $10,000 fine for any employer who hires them. For landlords, heavy fines also to rent to NON-REGISTERED illegal (but not criminal) aliens.
No doubt Bush & Co will now be handling illegal enforcement and border security in the way most painful to Americans in an effort to drive their greater goal of amnesty.
Bring it on!
I will not support Larry Craig’s reelection.
I also will not support his suggested replacement, Lt. Governor Jim Risch, because Risch is using his political capital to promote the liberal former Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney, for President.
More calls, faxes, e-mails, and mailings.
When Chertoff began making noises about enforcing the law, I predicted that this would be the result. My guess is that laws are being selectively enforced.
It was a ploy.
If these fools want more workers, and the American public can’t supply them then we should raise the number of LEGAL immigrants, bring in a variety of people from different countries and cultures and STOP pandering to Mexico.
We owe Mexico nothing - NADA!! We even PAID them for the territory we took in the Mexican War!!!
This is where Craig is a DISSEMBLER.
CURRENT LAW DOES PROVIDE FOR SEASONAL WORKERS!!! Sugar Can growers had it for DECADES.
Firing illegals and having LEGAL migrant workers is presently the law.
Also are not much of the potato farms automated now?
This is like trying to say we need illegals to harvest wheat by hand and deny the existence of harvester combines.
This is just manure to try and “punish” the public.
Colin Powel made a similar threat when the Greek Cypriots rejected the Kofi anan UN reunification plan. Powel said he would make the greeks pay and he did the day after the election and just before he resigned.
The new talking points.....”There will be a devastating labor shortage....we’ll all be killed!”
Once you register them anywhere, anyway they become legal.
At our place of business the company passes out "Husky Health care" pamphlets to let the state pay for their health care. They are underpaid to the point that they all qualify for full health care by the state.
“It was a ploy.”
The biggest scam part is that they won’t go after any company with 10 or less employees which is the majority.
The biggest % of the illegals are working for cash and aren’t being reported through the tax system and totally wind up exempt from their so called enforcement.
They're going to locate and then either lay off or fire 2 million illegal aliens in the next two months? Craig is full of it.
