Fresh off the press from Save The Old Dominion is an action item to support Delegate Bob Marshall’s amendment to the Virginia budget to mandate that the state use the E-Verify system to ensure that taxpayer funded jobs go to legal workers. With about 200,000 Virginians on unemployment right now, we don’t need to provide more employment opportunities for the 300,000 estimated illegal aliens in Virginia. We need to act now, since the vote on this will be Thursday, February 13th!
This is the Bob Marshall I know…
