SAY NO TO AMNESTY FOR ILLEGALS
Tell Your Senator NO on AgJOBS amendment!
Unfortunately, this bill has become a vehicle for wide-ranging immigration amendments. Senator Larry Craig (R-ID) will likely offer an amendment, commonly called AgJOBS, which will grant amnesty to illegal aliens working in the agricultural industry. Illegal aliens (and their families) who have worked in the US for as little as 100 days would be eligible to become permanent legal residents. This amendment is completely at odds with our national security and will spur a wildfire of other immigration amendments including:
Additionally, AgJOBS would ensure that taxpayers continue having to subsidize the workers and their families by providing public benefits of education, emergency health care, and income supplements (including tax refunds) for the workers and their families.
The AgJOBS amendment will lay out the welcome mat for illegal aliens already here and those seeking to enter our country illegally. The Senate must not allow any amnesty or guest worker program!
Urge members vote NO for the AgJOBS amendment!
