As you know, simply defeating amnesties and bad immigration legislation is not enough to solve our illegal immigration crisis! We have to be pro-active and push for enforcement. Eagle Forum supports Rep. Heath Shuler's (D-NC) SAVE Act (H.R. 4088)
, which requires employers to use the E-verify program so they can be assured they are not hiring illegal aliens. SAVE also adds increased technology and Border Patrol agents to the border.
This important bill needs to be moved to the House floor for debate and a vote soon! House Republicans have introduced a discharge petition to force Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to bring the bill to the floor. The petition needs to be signed by 218 members of Congress before the bill can move to the House floor. As of April 1, we are up to 185 signatures. For a list of signers click here
We need your help! Tell your Member of Congress to sign the SAVE Act Discharge Petition!
