Bill Raises Hurdle For Illegal Workers

author Published by Joe Jenkins

“House Bill 915, sponsored by Rep. Sandra Adams, R-Oviedo, would require employers who want to work with the state to use the now-voluntary E-Verify database. The free service uses databases of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration….

Mike Williams, a lobbyist for the Florida Building and Construction Trades Council, spoke in favor of the bill. Williams, an electrician, said illegal immigrants are taking construction jobs from native-born Americans.

“I’ve witnessed myself the impact of illegal workers in this country taking jobs from people who should be on the work site – taxpaying citizens of this country,” Williams said.” Salinero, Tampa Tribune, March 26, 2009
