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.
Go Oregon!!! YOU can be the state you once were!
“Democratic Representative Peter Buckley says the bill will most likely be passed this time around.”
Oregonians!!! Hammer your reps to support Esquivel’s bill.
Will never happen. Oregon is liberal haven esp. in Portland and Eugene.
“Will never happen. Oregon is liberal haven esp. in Portland and Eugene.”
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.
Dittos and Bump...
Knowing Oregonians as I do, it would not surprise me if Oregon passed an immigration law designed to keep out Californians.
This may already be posted here but it’s still a good read.
Of course it can...Places like Texas are over run with illegals...Even they could turn it around...Tough times will help drive this...
“Knowing Oregonians as I do, it would not surprise me if Oregon passed an immigration law designed to keep out Californians.”
LOL!! We did that once! “Don’t Californicate Oregon”.
That was when we had a governor with some.., well, you know.
....the government isn’t enforcing employee verification laws now. Otherwise, Obama wouldn’t be in office.
Thank you, Salvation, I couldn’t remember our Oregonians!
One you may have missed in Medford.

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.
Hey, will ‘ya take a conservative rural type, State of Jefferson, Californian?
I may want to flee this place someday.
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.
Californians-—Mexicans... what’s the difference?
Hey, AuntB! I never thought I would see it, but things are looking up politically! I think there’s going to be much needed changes here!
He’s still hot? ;o)
