Out of work and need a job?

An estimated 300,000 construction jobs paid for by the stimulus plan will go to illegal workers after leading Democrats removed a provision requiring verification of citizenship, a leading immigration expert tells Newsmax.
The House version of the $787 billion stimulus bill required verification of the legal residency of anyone put to work by its spending. But that provision was removed from the bill before members of Congress met to reconcile the House and Senate versions of the bill.
Steven Camarota, director of research for the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), tells Newsmax the verification provision was deleted by Democratic leaders even before the bill reached the conference committee, where differences between House and Senate legislation are normally ironed out.

To be fair, there are many pros and cons on the E-Verify check system that was removed. Some say it is no better than the old system of screening workers. Either way, in this day and age, I find this totally unacceptable. We have the technology to split a terrorist's ass cheeks with a bomb from over a mile away - but we can't verify if someone is an illegal immigrant. Again, totally unacceptable!
