This guy seems either totally confused, or thinks this town hall meeting is above him and totally unnecessary since – of course – he knows EVERYTHING and the little people know nothing. Could Rep. Pete Stark (D-Calif.) be such a fool?
I really am not quite sure if the guy is being sarcastic or suffering from dementia. He says E-Verify is what “the Arizona issue is all about.” The audience seems to want to help the guy out explaining how the system works and why it is in place.
Their efforts to guide the congressman, well … fail.
E-Verify program is voluntary for some companies and mandatory for others. Either way, federal law requires employers to only employ individuals who may legally work in the United States. E-Verify is one of the tools employers can use to help ensure a prospective employee can legally work in the country.
Of course, there is that huge problem with the E-Verify system that may ‘approve’ more than half of illegal aliens who are run through the system. The big issue seems to be identity theft, which happens to be a federal crime.
Come to think of it, since the federal system is letting half of all illegals through the system, shouldn’t Stark be happy about that?
Hat tip to Michelle Malkin, with video provided by the Golden Gate Minutemen and Bay Area Patriots who seem to be quite the thorn in the side of the California congressman … go get ’em, and Remember in November.
