Stiff PENALTY for Hiring Americans Instead of Aliens in USA: Senate's Immigration Reform Bill


Update: The issue presented in this article may have been addressed on Tuesday, July 2. The Wall Street Journal reports "the Obama administration said it is delaying penalties for large employers who do not provide health-insurance coverage to workers under the federal health-care law for 2014, the first year the provision was set to take effect. The health overhaul passed in 2010 requires companies with 50 or more workers to provide health benefits to full-time employees or pay fines starting at $2,000 per worker." Objections were raised because implementation of the Senate's Immigration Reform Bill would essentially penalize employers who hire American citizens and legal residents in 2014 but not if they hire former illegal aliens. The implication is that most of our lawmakers do not actually read bills and understand all of their provisions before voting for them, which is very unfortunate. (This concludes the update.)

Suggested reading regarding Immigration Reform Bill Senate Passed: "Ted Cruz Exposes Amnesty Bill: $5,000 PENALTY For Hiring Citizens Over Legalized Aliens," published June 27, 2013

The Democrat-controlled Senate passed the landmark immigration reform bill Thursday by a vote of 68-32. Fourteen Republicans joined the entire Democratic caucus in approving the bill. It provides a stiff PENALTY to employers who do not give preferential job placement to persons with “Registered Provisional Immigrant” (RPI) status. 

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) reports: “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.

African Americans are plagued with high unemployment more than other communities. The Senate's Immigration Reform Bill in its present state relegates U.S. citizens to being the last choice for jobs and guarantees that unemployed and under-employed Americans will continue the slide to poverty, homelessness, hopelessness, and possibly crime. At a time of austerity cuts in benefits programs that help provide food and shelter for poor Americans, it is particularly offensive to put a $5,000 penalty on employers who hire them. Thanks to Sen. Cruz for exposing and opposing this evil provision in the Immigration Reform Bill. Read details at the link below:

"This is unreal, unbelievable and unforgivable." Under the Senate's Immigration Reform Bill, employers would have to pay a $5,000 penalty to hire one of the graduates pictured below instead of an RPI. Thanks, Democrat-led Senate. You are INCREDIBLE.

Battered person syndrome is a physical and psychological condition of a person who suffers (usually persistent) emotional, physical, or sexual abuse from another person and continues to remain in a relationship with the abuser.

Thanks, Sen. Cruz, for exposing and opposing this flaw in the Senate's Immigration Reform Bill. Thanks to the Obama Administration for giving employers time that may be needed to adjust to the insurance law.
