To some of you that are upset about my turning up the heat on ILLEGAL ALIENS...get over it. We have ELEVEN MILLION AMERICANS OUT OF WORK, THEIR CHILDREN GOING HUNGRY! We take care of our own!
Sen. Harry Reid claimed in a March 2nd letter to constituents that he supports the E-Verify system, here:
But when the “stimulus” was being debated, Reid prevented any discussion of including the House-passed provision requiring use of the E-Verify system by contractors receiving stimulus money, which would have helped prevent illegals from getting these taxpayer-subsidized jobs.
In conference, he and Speaker Pelosi stripped out the House’s E-Verify provision. On Thursday, Reid stymied Sen. McConnell’s attempt to bring up an amendment to the FY-09 spending bill that would reauthorize E-Verify for 5 years.
So Reid lied to his constiuents, and has violated his oath of office yet again.
