AMERICAN JOBS: Why broad based coalitions are opposing the Legal Workforce Act

09/14/2011
A 5-11 Campaign Action Alert  
The House Judiciary Committee will be hearing the Legal Workforce Act Thursday morning – a bill to mandate E-Verify and to integrate federal employment data systems with State drivers license records.  It may create a permission based system to work in the United States for Americans.  It comes from the same people who brought you the Real ID Act – sponsored in part by Rep. Lamar Smith and Rep. James Sensenbrenner. 
If continued,  E-Verify may create employment barriers for some citizens. There are also outstanding privacy concerns over SSN#’s administered in a web based application. 
You can take action by contacting the House Judiciary Committee to ask them to vote NO on The Legal Workforce Act –before it becomes the next national identity mandate. Use your constituent power by calling key Committee members from your State.  
NOTE: Hearing information may change so keep refreshing the calendar section.
