Sessions: Reid Blocking Amendment Requiring Employers Check Immigration Status
SESSIONS: SENATE DEMS CATERING TO SPECIAL CORPORATE INTERESTS AT THE EXPENSE OF AMERICAN WORKERS (Breitbart)
On Wednesday, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) spoke on the floor of the U.S. Senate and addressed the Democratic Party's reluctance to include certain provision to a pending unemployment insurance bill.
"We have offered legislation to [require employers to hire legal workers], and I have offered it as an amendment to this unemployment insurance legislation, but I have been told it will be blocked. We will not get a vote. The leader has filled the tree. What this proposal would do is it would create some jobs for Americans who are out of work. It absolutely would. It would work, and it would immediately help create jobs. That is why the establishment doesn't want to see it happen, if you want to know the truth.”
