Posted on 04/27/2013 6:57:02 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
The Senates complex immigration bill would instantly gut the popular E-Verify system that is widely used to exclude illegal immigrants from jobs, and then create an enforcement gap for several years before the arrival of a replacement system.
Theres no doubt that the bill eliminates E-Verify immediately upon signing, said Kris Kobach, secretary of state of Kansas, told The Daily Caller.
If theres no statutory authority for E-Verify, theres no E-Verify, said Kobach, a lawyer trained at Harvard, Oxford and Yale universities, and a prominent advocate for reduced immigration.
The claim is vehemently disputed by the bills advocates, including staffers working for Sen. Marco Rubio.
However, Rubio staffers were unable to show TheDC any text in the legislation that gives the current E-Verify system legal backing until the new system is mandated in several years.
The multi-year gap in E-Verify enforcement creates a political problem for Rubio and the other advocates of the Senate immigration bill....

Rubio’s leading role as one of the 8 Gangsters should end his political future in the GOP. Will it happen?
Rubio is finished as a presidential nominee. If he couldn’t read Schumer’s immigration bill and understand that the Dems were sandbagging the GOP again, he doesn’t have the capacity for leading the nation at this critical time.
You are so right!
Don’t ask don’t tell for illegals. Don’t let the Border Patrol do their jobs, give the illegals aid that Americans can’t get but have to pay for and no matter how many of these drunken idiots kill, try to look at it from their cultural view point. F**k all of this, mine the border and put the military out there with loaded weapons and defend our country as the Constitution demands!
This statement is a lie or at least a complete misunderstanding. If it was popular and widely used, there wouldn't be nearly as many illegal immigrants.
Anyone supporting Amnesty, whether McCain, Grahmnesty, Rubio or Rand Paul is a traitor to our cause!
The GOP are going to lose either way,if the bill passes the Obama Admin will FAST TRACK to get these new Dem voters and if it fails they will bombard us with how bad and evil the GOP is ,so it’s a lose lose for the GOP.
There is a huge push right now for this immigration bill, which has to go faster because a federal judge in Texas has ruled that Obama’s amnesty executive order is unconstitutional. And appeals from that judge go to the 5th Circuit, that has a 10 Republican appointee to 5 Democrat ratio.
This means that the 5th Circuit could effectively wipe this out, and all the Mexicans who gave detailed information to the government would be boned, as soon as the SCOTUS refused to hear the case.
ICE could scoop them up in record time. And because the judge ruled that only congress could tell them who to arrest, not Obama, they would be obliged to act on the information they had. Once arrested, Obama could decide to not deport some of them, but they would be subject to arrest thereafter.
Thank God for the state approving who you can hire, comrade.
It’s an encroachment of federal authority into hiring for business.
Cheaper than thinking I suppose. What’s so difficult about checking ID and not hiring folks that you aren’t certain about?
You sound like an open-border libertarian. E-verify is a tool to cut off the job magnet for illegals. It is against the law to work in the US if you entered illegally. It actually protects employers. And there are an estimated 8 million illegal aliens employed in this country while 23 million Americans are seeking fulltime employment.
The program has a user satisfaction rate of 87%.
So you are against the I-9 process?
“The claim is vehemently disputed by the bills advocates, including staffers working for Sen. Marco Rubio.

Figure this out fast people, Rubio has the worst of the worst working for him. Or is he working for them???
Chief of Staff Cesar Conda has had a hand in destroying EVERY immigration enforcement move for 3 decades. And Rubio’s top adviser is Norquist, the biggest open border quisling alive.
What percentage of the GOP base do you suppose has any idea of the shady nonsense Rubio & gang are pulling. I bet it's not over 5%. The media will fawn over him, and make him out to be anything but what he is. That's already begun. The power of the GOP...the Bush's, Rove, Norquist are sure never going to turn on him.
None of us knew until a week ago that Paul Ryan was an amnesty whore.
He’s a troll. Spotted him long ago.
our pee-resident can’t pass e-verify, and that didn’t stop him.
You are either young or an arrogant Libertarian. I went through all Libertarian phases years back.
Anyway Einstein, e-verify is a net positive to help control the failed border mess we have.
Any country has the legal and moral right to make sure that only "citizens" or legal aliens are allowed to work. In no way does that contradict our Founders principles.
Yep, no doubt. Most likely he is a DUmpster fan who trolls to needle Conservatives.
Nothing he posts shows a love of Country or our beloved Constitution.
