1 in 7 New Construction Jobs Could Go to Illegal Immigrants

WASHINGTON, D.C. (February 4, 2008) — The Senate Stimulus bill currently being considered contains about $104 billion in new government funding for construction projects with the goal of creating jobs for millions of unemployed Americans. Unlike the House version, there is no provision in the bill to bar illegal immigrants from getting these taxpayer-funded jobs. This could result in several hundred thousand illegal immigrants receiving jobs.

Republicans want a stimulus bill to boost the American Economy and the American Worker.

    Here’s a never considered concept for an economic stimulus package that is centered not only on President Obama’s package, but also on the minimum wage, immigration, outsourcing and exporting Technology, which I feel would stimulate the economy faster than what’s been presented in both the House and Senate.

    Another screw up by the GOP, how can we take care of Iraq and Afghanistan if we can’t protect our own borders?
