Illegal immigration and lack of enforcement has caused higher levels of unemployment and cost billion in taxpayer’s dollars.

The only benefactors of illegal immigration are employers looking for a cheap labor and illegal immigrants. The losers are taxpayers, our economy, and low-skilled or unemployed citizens.

On July 29, the N.C. Senate sent H.B. 786 (Reclaim N.C. Act) to Gov. Pat McCrory for his signature.

This bill weakens the verification requirement under the existing E-verify law. Section § 64-25 redefines an employee as “any individual who provides services or labor for an employer in this State for wages or other remuneration. The term does not include an individual whose term of employment is less than nine months in a calendar year”. Under the new definition and loophole, employers can avoid the requirements of the E-verify law by just hiring illegal immigrants for less than a nine-month time period in a year, thus taking jobs away from law abiding citizens.

I can vision illegal immigrant worker exchanges being set up amongst employers so they can swap illegal immigrant workers between themselves every six to nine months in order to have a year-round work force. Some of our elected politicians chose illegal foreigners above citizen’s interest; thereby, making a fatal decision that could cost them their bid for re-election.

I encourage all citizens to take action immediately by contacting Gov. McCrory at 919-814-2000 or online at http://www.governor.nc.gov/contact/email-pat and demand him to veto H.B. 786. Citizens should come first, not lawbreaking foreigners.
