Look familiar? Contact the Coalition leaders and members. Tell them to stop lobbying against immigration laws for Kansas. This coalitions argument will be that the Ks. immigration bills will cost Kansas more money during hard economic times. Your argument is: Our government is increasing the citizens taxes to compensate for funding immigrants. The coalition will reply with an argument that immigrants pay taxes; your argument is that illegal immigrants when hired take maximum deductions and then do not file at year end. Taxpayers are spending around $500 million per year in benefits for immigrates, including illegal aliens and we are losing jobs to them. Businesses that hire immigrants do not provide benefits or enough pay for a person to live on; therefore, the welfare system is funding these low pay (slave labor) immigrants with taxpayer dollars instead of businesses. I am a business owner and feel a simple system as e-verify (within the immigration bills) will detect an invalid S.S. # and the S.S. Admin. will notify the business. The business can request proper identification from the employee or refuse employment for that person. Many States are starting to enforce e-verify in their businesses. Providing jobs and benefits to illegals in Kansas only promotes migration to our State. It has to stop! Call your legislators and tell them to stop catering to the special interest groups such as Kansas Business Coalition. Let your voice be heard!
