SUBJECT:  Enter Into Record LB 611 Proponent

Dear Business and Labor Chairman and Committee Members:

Please enter into the record my support for LB 611 and request you advance it to the floor for a full debate and vote.

Several years ago Nebraska passed a law requiring businesses that have city/state government contracts must use E-Verify.  It is time to require ALL businesses to use it because…………….(NOTE:  the following are talking points provided by Susan Gumm of NTF-Project Immigration )

1)  The 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA), explicitly prohibits illegal aliens from being employed in the United States.
2)  E-Verify laws help to ensure that illegal aliens don’t get jobs, and sends a message that illegal aliens won’t be able to find work in the U.S.
3)  E-Verify will safeguard opportunities for legal workers and give employers a reliable tool to have a legal workforce.
4)  States and localities have a role in helping enforce immigration laws, especially when confronted with federal administrations that are not aggressive in enforcement.
5)  Protect the jobs and wages of lawful residents.
6)  With soaring unemployment rates nationwide, the best thing any smart, practical, law-abiding, civic-minded and patriotic American businesses can do is begin using E-Verify to ensure that all new hires are legal to work in the United States.
7)  Poll after poll shows that voters think American workers should come first.
8)  The American people are right to be concerned about their jobs and wages, and elected officials at every level should put the needs of American workers first.
9)  E-Verify is one program that would turn off the illegal immigration jobs magnet
10)  Federal law requires all employers to verify the identity and employment eligibility of all persons hired to work in the United States.

Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.
