Senate Immigration Bill PORK

Here is a short list of PORK inserted into the Senate passed immigration reform bill:

 
  • Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Mark Begich (D-AK) slipped into the bill a provision that will allow seafood processors to hire young foreign workers through a summer work travel program
  • Sens. Harry Reid (D-NV) and Dean Heller (R-NV) successfully inserted the language that basically gives kickbacks to Las Vegas casinos
  • Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) successfully fought to include in the bill a $1.5 billion taxpayer-funded set aside for youth jobs programs
In addition, businesses that hire immigration visa holders save money because

  • they don't have to pay unemployment taxes, Medicare or Social Security
  • participants must also have their own health insurance
I hope that the House will vote this version of the immigration bill OUT! Read more at…
