Nancy Pelosi has decided that the country should not have a chance to have the Secure America with Verification and Enforcement (SAVE) Act. The SAVE Act is a bi-partisan bill seeking to strengthen border security and limit illegal aliens in our work force
Pelosi has threatened political exile to the 50 Democrats in Congress who co-sponsored the bill, but have yet to sign its discharge petition which would bring the bill up for a vote on the House floor.
It doesn’t seem to matter to the Speaker of the House that a majority of Americans are in favor of securing our borders. It doesn’t matter that the constituents in the 50 Democratic House districts might want the bill brought to the floor. It doesn’t matter that the Speaker promised to work in bi-partisan manner when she took her position in 2006. It doesn’t matter to Ms Pelosi what is good for the country.
Six years after 9-11, the federal government still hasn’t done what nearly 70% of Americans want: secure our borders from the continuing flood of illegal aliens.
The SAVE Act targets employers with still penalties for hiring illegal aliens, secures both the northern and southern borders of our country by adding 8,000 new border patrol agents and increases interior enforcement by allowing for additional federal district court judges and providing more resources for law enforcement officers.
As of June 25th, there were 190 of the needed 218 signatures required. Urge your representative in Congress to sign the petition which would bring the bill to the floor for a vote.
