U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), a senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement today following the introduction of a measure he cosponsored to permanently authorize and require employers to use the E-Verify program, a simple and proven way to bring immigration security to the workplace:
"E-verify is the standard for all businesses that work with the state of Alabama," Sessions said. "This nation's economic climate is marred by high unemployment and stagnant job growth. It is important, now more than ever, to actively present employment opportunities to United States citizens. Illegal labor, subsidized by federal benefits, is taking jobs and thus hurting both legal immigrants and native born Americans. This cannot continue. Before considering some broad-based amnesty, shouldn't we finally deliver for the American people on the enforcement of those laws already in place? What good are new promises when old ones are being broken? This legislation is a crucial step towards restoring the rule of law in America and regaining the trust of the American people necessary to consider future reforms."
