Rep. Gary Miller Says Amnesty Will Kill American Jobs

Rep. Gary Miller
In an op-ed piece published by the Daily Caller, Rep. Gary Miller (R-Calif.) criticizes the Administration and Congressional leadership for not doing enough for America's 15 million unemployed. Rep. Miller says that the Gutierrez Amnesty bill introduced in the House would "jeopardize millions of jobs for Americans and legal residents."
Rep. Miller criticizes the Administration for constantly saying that its No. 1 priority is jobs, while allowing job-killing bills to come up for votes in Congress. And allowing the Gutierrez Amnesty bill to be introduced proves the point.
Rep. Miller points out several key points in the bill that would hurt unemployed Americans. First, Miller criticizes the offering of amnesty to the nation's 12 million illegal aliens, saying that "granting amnesty to those that have recklessly disregarded our nation’s immigration laws is an affront to American citizens and legal residents."
Second, Rep. Miller points to the bill's overhaul of the E-Verify system; "... the legislation severely weakens existing and proven worksite enforcement activities."
Rep. Miller says the best way to protect American workers is to pass his legislation, the Loophole Elimination and Verification Enforcement Act (H.R.994), which puts immigration enforcement first.
