  1. The Washington schedule remains crammed with health care reform, cap and trade, and all the other FY2010 spending bills. Senate Majority Whip Richard Durbin stated it could take an omnibus bill if all the spending bills aren’t complete by the recess in August. When the Senate passed four immigration-related amendments previously, that would guarantee the completion of the border fence, mandate E-Verify for federal contractors permanently, extend E-Verify and restart the suspended no-match program. The next step is always the ominous conference committees, where new laws are weakened, shelved or just simply killed. With the House passing a diverse version of the bill, it was sent to a conference committee where it still sits dormant and waits for further consideration.

    This is the perfect set-up, to alter completely E-Verify or any amendments as already exhibited by the open border, free trade politicians.
