S.C. Governor Nikki Haley Battles DHS over E-Verify
As we see in the above video, courtesy of FoxNews.com, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley has sent DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano a letter demanding that the state’s employers have access to the federal E-Verify system so they may comply with the law that requires them to check the legal status of perspective employees before hiring them. So far, Ms. Napolitano refuses to reply to that letter and numerous phone calls to explain why DHS is refusing South Carolina employers access to the E-Verify system so they may comply with the law regrading the hiring of illegal aliens in South Carolina. What is very troubling here is the fact that the Obama administration, and Janet Napolitano to be specific, are constantly bragging about their crackdown on any employers caught hiring illegals, yet here we see them denying South Carolina employers access to E-Verify. For those of you who may not fully understand what the E-Verify system is, you may read up on it here.
It is against federal, and now South Carolina State law to hire illegal aliens in America, so why is the Obama administration blocking access to E-verify? Employers caught hiring illegals have been fined huge amounts of money by the federal government in their supposed crackdown on the hiring of illegals, yet they are now denying South Carolina the ability to verify that perspective employees are legally eligible to work in America before hiring them! Just who does Janet Napolitano think she is here in refusing to answer Gov. Haley’s letter? The taxpayers of this country paid huge amounts of money to create the E-Verify system in 1997, and now we can not use it? Where is Congress on this issue? How about S. C. Senator Jim DeMint calling for an investigation and/or the removal of Janet Napolitano from DHS, since she is blocking the the use of E-Verify, therefore in violation of federal laws that prohibit the hiring of illegals in America? How about House Speaker John Boehner growing a spine and demanding that DHS be investigated here? This is supposedly what we pay you people for up there in D.C., to protect the citizens of this country from exactly this kind of abuse of public office, yet not one of you is doing anything about it!
This kind of blatant example of government abuse against the people of America is the reason the people no longer have faith in the federal government. The President of the United States and the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security are in direct violation of federal law and the people of this country had better wake up to facts like these explained right here. Congress must call for the removal of Janet Napolitano immediately, and the people must be heard in the 2012 presidential elections in the form of removing Barack Hussein Obama from their White House!
