UPDATE 2: Senate rejected House Amendments 29-10. Vote details will be up shortly.
Senator Barker’s weak SB 1049 was successfully amended by Delegate Jackson Miller today to include provisions the Senate previously hid from by not bringing the bills up in the Senate Courts of Justice Committee. Now the bill goes to the Senate floor, where if it is scheduled for a vote, will be the first time the Senate will take a public vote on any initiative to reduce the number of illegal aliens unlawfully employed in at least the past four years.
Contact your Senators now and tell them you want SB 1049 scheduled for a vote and you expect them to vote for it. The business lobby that tries to protect employers who use cheap illegal alien labor while lawful Virginians are unemployed only has about 24 hours to try to beat this back. You have 24 hours to finally get an opportunity to see the Commonwealth do anything meaningful to address the illegal alien problem in the Commonwealth!
