The article focuses on the refusal of the U.S. Congress to require that employers on construction projects verify that their workers are Americans. The Center for Immigration Studies predicts that illegal aliens will take 300,000 of the two million construction jobs to be created by the stimulus bill. The author explains how can Congress guarantee that virtually every job paid for by U.S. taxpayers would go to U.S. workers through the E-Verify program of the Department of Homeland Security.
