URGENT - Please help stop HR. 4088

4088  IS A DEPORT-ONLY BILL


The Republicans have pushed this bill to vote even though it has not been evaluated in committee. It is urgent that everyone contact their representative.


On November 6, 2007, Rep. Shuler (D-NC) introduced H.R. 4088, the Secure America Through Verification and Enforcement Act of 2007 (the "SAVE Act"). The Shuler bill, which now has over 139 co-sponsors takes a deportation-only approach to immigration reform. Anti-immigrant Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO) is a co-sponsor of H.R. 4088, along with a who's who of the least immigrant-friendly members of Congress.

The bill will:

Target minor children and families for detention and mandate the creation of a new family detention center modeled after the infamous T. Don Hutto Facility;

Confiscate private land of citizens through eminent domain for building more fences which have already proven ineffective at curbing immigration;

Increase militarization of the border through additional body armor and firearms for agents; and
Impose a mandatory electronic employer verification program known as the Basic Pilot Program (re-branded as E-verify) on the entire American workforce. This highly controversial program lacks necessary safeguards to protect American workers from wrongful termination and improperly identify at least 2.5 million workers as ineligible for employment. The program would also destabilize the economy by immediately removing at least 7 million undocumented employees from the entire U.S. workforce at one time.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

Your assessment of the bill is inaccurate.

H.R. 4088 provides for the discrepancies and mismatches that you note exist in the federal databases, and provides for their correction in section 202.a and 202.b of the bill, in addition to providing for a phase-in over a 4-year span (Sec. 201), under Title-II.

There are penalties for breaking a nation's laws, any nations. These penalties apply to citizens and non-citizens alike. Prisons are full people who decided to break the law, and their families suffer the consequences of their personal decision to do so.

Ok antibush - That makes sense - let the criminals out because the families are upset.

More unnaccountability for lawbreakers.

How come the lawbreakers aren't required to be accountable for the grief THEY cause their families for being scofflaws?

Antibush, when you have to work until you're 72 years old because social security is bankrupt, health care and social services are broke because of the resources used by illegals overwhem the system, maybe you will GET IT!
