ACTION: Tell your Senator to Oppose E-Verify NOW

Senator Sessions has introduced an amendment to the Senate Homeland Security Appropriations Act of 2010 that would make E-Verify mandatory for all federal contractors. If implemented, it would affect almost 4 million workers.

The amendment would:

  • Make the notoriously flawed E-verify program permanent.
  • Require all federal contractors and subcontractors to use the program to verify all employees including existing employees.
  • Harm U.S. workers, citizens and non-citizens alike, who are falsely denied work.

ACTION NEEDED:

  1. Call both of your Senators THIS MORNING (Click here to find your Senator)
  2. Tell them:
  • You OPPOSE the Sessions amendment (#1371) to make E-Verify permanent and mandatory for federal contractors.
  • You SUPPORT having a real debate about immigration issues and the only way for that to happen is by starting comprehensive immigration reform this year.
