Skip to comments.Ted Cruz Exposes Amnesty Bill: $5000 Penalty For Hiring Citizens Over Legalized Aliens
Posted on 06/27/2013 6:37:09 PM PDT by EXCH54FE
We cant possibly expect our Senators to read a 1200 page bill before voting on it. Can we? Well Thank God Ted Cruz read it. Not only did Cruz read it but he schooled anyone who would listen from the Senate floor on Tuesday. Cruz found a loophole that actually penalizes an employer $5000 for hiring a citizen over a legalized alien. Seriously. You cant make this stuff up. Senator Cruz was quoted as saying:
I filed an amendment that would have corrected one of the most egregious aspects of the gang of eight bill as it intersects with Obamacare legislation, namely a penalty imposed on U.S. employers for hiring U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents. This bill says if an employer hires a citizen or a legal immigrant, the IRS can impose a $5,000 penalty on that employer. But if the employer instead hires someone with RPI status, that penalty will go away. That is utterly and completely indefensible.
Nobody in this body wants to see African-American unemployment go up. Nobody wants to see Hispanic unemployment go up, youth unemployment go up, union household unemployment go up, legal immigrant unemployment go up. Yet every one of those will happen if this Gang of Eight bill passes without fixing this problem. If that happens, all 100 members of the U.S. Senate will be accountable to our constituents for explaining why we voted to put a federal penalty on hiring U.S. citizens and hiring legal immigrants. I hope this body will choose to pass my amendment and fix this grave defect in the Gang of Eight legislation.

"The United States shall guarantee to every state in the union a republican form of government,
AND SHALL PROTECT EACH OF THEM AGAINST INVASION."
if you have to ask....
Glad you posted this!!!
I suggest everyone send this to their congresscritters, whether they voted pro-amnesty or not! I did.
(I always like letting THEM know WE know.)
It’s not being sold, it’s being foisted upon us. We’ve come to expect that from the dems as it’s the same thing they did with Obamacare. But every Republican senator who voted for it should be voted out, especially its cheerleadwers Juan McShame, Marco Rubio and Lindsey Graham.
I know there are those that would say he can’t be but Ted
Cruz needs to be the next US President
Also, PLEASE send this to everyone in your e-mail with an extra “Hi-FU” salutation to the gubmint.
Let OTHERS know what’s going on and remember-—the House will try to pull one over the American people; combining THIS bill with theirs—it’s a Trojan Horse made to SOUND good to the American people, but will be a POS.
They DO NOT CARE.
al Qaeda - they protect
Boston terrorists - NO passports needed
illegals - all can enter US med schools without standards
infections diseases? - “come on down”
THEY DO NOT CARE.
There are zips in the wire.
That is the great thing about legislation that is hundreds of pages long, nobody will ever read it and will vote for it simply based on “trust me.” That way the sleazoids that write the legislation can slip in this type of outrageous garbage and get away with it.
Hey Rubio, you really should just be delivering pizzas in Sarasota, ya’ jerkoff.
This Senate thing is way over your head.
But how does this work? If the House makes their own bill and forwards it to the Senate and they amend it, does the House get to vote on it again?
The Mafia would love the US government...it just transfers are tax dollars to there friends for kickbacks..
"It's cool they didn't, or couldn't, read the bill.
Was it in cursive?"
They’re traitors and here they are!
They are trying to force a civil war or revolution on our once great nation, it will give them the power they are desire so deeply.
Ted Cruz OBVIOUSLY spoke with my sin-ators; I, reluctantly, had to send them “thank yous” for voting against it. (shiver!)
Thank YOU, Ted Cruz. Genuinely.
We need to do FOIA requests for their contact from constituents. I’ll guarantee it is 5 to 1 against and these senators are voting for it anyway. How is that representing your district?
