ALERT! Call the House leadership to move HR 2164, the E-Verify bill!
If Congress is truly concerned about unemployed Americans—the unemployment rate rose to 9.2 percent in June—it will move promptly to pass HR 2164. The Legal Workforce Act would mandate the usage of the E-Verify program by all employers and make available millions of jobs currently held by illegal workers.
We need you to call the House leadership and tell them that they need to pass a mandatory E-Verify bill in the House before the August recess. The key players are:
House Speaker John Boehner: (202) 225-0600
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor: (202)225-2815
Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy: (202) 225-2915
Politely tell the aide or message system that American workers are suffering and that HR 2164 will help put legal workers back to work.
If you are from California, we suggest you start with McCarthy who represents the Bakersfield area. Constituents of his may also want to call his Bakersfield office at 661-327-3611.
Please also call the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121and ask the House Republican leadership to move HR 2164 before the August recess.
