This is the danger that New Jersey presents to the rest of the United States, when electing such mental midgets as Democrat Senator Robert Menendez:
E-Verify (the effective program to keep illegal aliens out of U.S. jobs) now is facing danger in the Senate, as well as the House .
The NumbersUSA Capitol Hill Team has been told that Sen. Menendez (D-N.J.) has put a "hold" on legislation to reauthorize the E-Verify workplace verification program. That means the Senate is barred from voting to keep it alive. Without a vote, E-Verify will die in November.
Our understanding is that Sen. Menendez is blocking the most effective tool against illegal immigration in order to get something else that he wants. He will allow an E-Verify vote if he is allowed to give hundreds of thousands of skilled American jobs permanently to hundreds of thousands of additional immigrants.
At a time when skilled Americans and students aspiring to those jobs are finding a depressed job market, Sen. Menendez is insisting on flooding their occupations with even more foreign workers. And if he doesn't get his way, he will take away the best tool that employers have to keep illegal foreign workers from taking jobs at every rung of the ladder, but especially at the lower-skilled job level.
This outrageously callous behavior toward American workers during a time of employment shrinkage is typical for Sen. Menendez. His lifetime immigration voting has earned him an F-minus in the category of protecting American workers from unfair foreign labor competition. And his overall career immigration-reduction grade (all categories) is an F.
When it comes to favoring foreign workers (and the greedy employers who use them to depress wages) over struggling American workers, Sen. Menendez has no shame....
And neither do New Jersey Democrats, who would rather vote for a dangerous, incompetent assclown like Menendez rather than even consider anyone with an (R) next to their name. Who needs Saudi-funded madrassas when New Jerseyians can export our own brand of lethal madness throughout the United States?
