Luis Gutierrez: ‘I’m Ready to Do E-Verify’

Big Government: Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) is reportedly willing to support E-Verify in exchange for permanent amnesty for so-called Dreamers.

“I’m ready to do E-Verify,” Gutierrez told Roll Call for the publication’s Monday feature story on the issue.

The Senate’s Secure and Succeed Act, which is being backed by Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Tom Cotton (R-AR), John Cornyn (R-TX), David Perdue (R-GA), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Thom Tillis (R-NC), and James Lankford (R-OK), would implement the White House’s immigration framework that would give amnesty to nearly two million so-called Dreamers while mandating E-Verify.

Thomas Homan, acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), told Roll Call that businesses that routinely hire illegal immigrants without consequences have been a major “pull” factor for illegal immigration.

Corporate interests–and the politicians on both sides of the aisle who are backed by the big-business lobby–have long opposed mandatory E-Verify, arguing they would lose access to cheap labor.

“Nearly 20 million Americans are unemployed or underemployed. Meanwhile, 7 million people are working in the United States illegally,” Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX), who is considered one of Congress’s foremost experts on the issue and has introduced multiple bills that would would make E-Verify mandatory, reportedly told the outlet. “By expanding the E-Verify system to all U.S. employers, this bill will ensure that jobs only go to legal workers.”  read more

  1. My third attempt at posting this.

    That’s because this asshole got his hand caught in the cookie jar, needs to retire. So them damn Brown Peeps are no longer an advantage or make him any money.

  2. No E-Verify when you hire an illegal, but they check Americans seven ways from Sunday when they try to buy a firearm.

  3. I have an idea.

    How about NO AMNESTY and we still have E-VERIFY, and we deport Looiss gootierrez on general principle.

    Ambition is an admirable thing. But hasn’t he already accomplished a few things that should land him in prison?

  5. Tsunami,
    I’m close with you on this one.
    How about a reverse of the typical Dildocratic legislative parlor tricks:
    Pass, fully fund, and implement the mandatory e-verify FIRST, then we’ll talk about possible amnesty for the Dreamers.


    *$20,000 fine.
