Sen. Jeff Sessions Blasts Reid and Pelosi for Stripping E-Verify from Stimulus Package

Earlier today, Senator Jeff Sessions delivered a speech on the Senate floor attempting to add E-Verify back into the bill, citing studies from Heritage and the Center for Immigration Studies that said several hundred thousand stimulus jobs will go to illegal aliens. Sessions urged a floor vote, saying that E-Verify would more than likely pass a vote in the Senate. Sessions also mentioned that President Obama has already delayed the mandatory use of E-Verify for federal contractors not to mention that the program is set to expire on March 6 unless there’s a reauthorization. “Are we now seeing some serious movement to undermine one of the most effective programs ever to verify work eligibility?” Sessions asked on the floor. In a statement released earlier, he pointed to how the House Appropriations Committee unanimously agreed on two E-Verify amendments.
