Is an immigration bill coming to Oregon?
KTVL Medford ^ | Aug. 8, 2010 | Katie Conner

MEDFORD ORE. – Sal Esquivel, supporter of Arizona's immigration bill, is now proposing his own bill to cut down on the number of illegal immigrants in Oregon.

“It's about a $7 million problem for taxpayers,” said Sal Esquivel.

Esquivel ‘s bill would require businesses to use e-verification, a system that uses an applicant' social security number, passport or green cards to verify that he or she is a legal citizen of the Untied States.

Employers who hire illegal workers would be disciplined.

Esquivel proposed the bill last legislative session but it got turned down.

Democratic Representative Peter Buckley says the bill will most likely be passed this time around.

“The only opposition would be with the agricultural interest,” said Buckley. “There is a concern about the work force in terms of just harvesting crops.”

According to Esquivel, stopping illegal immigration in Oregon would bring $1.4 billion of tax payer's money back to the state.

“It's hard to be an American and if you want to be an America, you better work at it,” said Esquivel. “If you want to come here and just use the system, I don't welcome you.”

Sal is a good representative, Oregon is lucky to have him. I am proud to have spent 6 years in school with him. We graduated in the Medford class of '66. And he's still hot!:<)

Go Oregon!!! YOU can be the state you once were!

Yes, they’re liberal, also Corvallis and Ashland. I lived there 50 years. I’d like my home back one day. Should we just give up??? It could happen if there weren’t so many naysayers every time someone TRIES.

Knowing Oregonians as I do, it would not surprise me if Oregon passed an immigration law designed to keep out Californians.

....the government isn’t enforcing employee verification laws now. Otherwise, Obama wouldn’t be in office.

Amen to that, AuntB. And I'd say as a 15 year resident of OR that Sal Esquivel and Peter Buckley might know a tad more about it than crs.

If illegal aliens only cost Oregon $7 million a year, they are getting off easy. Between the cost of incarcerating the illegal alien felons, schooling the children of illegals, being forced to provide medical care for them, the suppression of wages and jobs lost to them, most states are looking at a $1 BILLION or more price tag.

And we haven’t even started with the number of citizens murdered in cold blood or killed by drunken illegal alien drivers.

It’ll come to nothing. The Democrats aren’t going to allow such an enormous Democrat voter base to leave the country without a fight, law or no law.

I saw Sal at a Freedom Works conference a few months ago. He talked about his father being a bracero & how he worked for 14 years to emigrate. Wouldn’t even let his kids speak Spanish at home, he was so proud of being an American.

Sal needs to add one thing to his bill, & that’s a requirement for state offices to verify the immigration status of anyone applying for aid. State law says they cannot receive benefits, but state workers are apparently told not to verify. Outrageous!

And yes, he is hot! :-)

Help Texas watch her borders.
Watch live on 14 cameras and report illegal alien invaders.
Night cams in operation

http://www.blueservo.net/index.php?error=nlg

Does it work? Yes.
Recently caught on cam and reported:
String of illegals running through brush with backpacks
Numerous sightings of boats crossing the river
Numerous vehicles late at night in isolated areas
IMMENSELY satisfying

It’s gotta be closing in on the billion mark. We have so many illegal beans in Oregon, it staggers the imagination. Just go to the DMV or emergency room at any hospital. It’s almost like they’re given a list of which gubbermint agencies they’re supposed to hit once they cross the border.

Liberalism is a mental disorder and it’s killing this country. Same with Europe. I hope we have a plan in place to secure Europe’s nuclear arsenal once it becomes an Islamic third world sh!t hole under sharia law.

Mexico is invading and moving north with open help from their government and ours. We’ll become a third world sh!t hole not long after Europe is taken over by the muzzies.

At least Spanish is easier to learn than Arabic.

I have to assume that’s a Mail Tribune error...I know Sal knows better than that. It costs Jackson County alone more than that in pot eradication of the cartel plantations on public lands.

The Spanish threw out the last of the Muslims in 1492. Today the Muslims will take it over without firing a shot.

Yea, the price is probably closer to $7 billion a year.
