    Stopping Illegal Immigration

    If you don't know about Numbers USA, you should.
    This site has been leading the fight against illegal immigration for a few years now and played a big part in knocking down the Bush-Kennedy amnesty plan.
    They've done this by making it easy - and free - for you to fax your senators and congressmen to express your opposition to government attemps to coddle what can only be described as a criminal class - people who enter the U.S. illegally and place great drains on our social systems.

    I urge you to visit the Numbers USA website, learn who they are and what they're doing. If, like me, you believe immigration control starts at our borders, perhaps you'll register and make your voice heard.

    Now they've made it easy for all of us to know which employers - big and small - are using the E-Verify system to avoid hiring illegals. Numbers USA suggests civil ways to approach those who do not use E-Verify, but they mandate nothing. No marching orders here.
    You may choose to approach the offending employer with questions; you may decide on a personal boycott or anything in between. The choice is yours and the mission of Numbers USA is to keep you informed.

    Like thousands - perhaps millions - of other concerned citizens I am a registered member of Numbers USA and over the past few years I've used their service to send hundreds of faxes to congress and the president. Beyond that, I have no affiliation.

    You don't have to wait for Congress, or your Governor, or your County Board to do something to push more illegal aliens out of the workforce and put more Americans back into jobs.

    Find out here if any particular local employer is committed to hiring only legal U.S. workers.

    If a local employer is NOT using E-Verify, you can express your disappointment and begin a pressure campaign until the employer signs up.

    Keep in mind that any employer who is not using E-Verify is at the least keeping the option open to be able to hire illegal foreign workers in the future -- and quite possibly is doing so now.

    Only if the employer is using E-Verify can you know that there is a good faith effort to reserve scarce jobs for U.S. workers. The employers on this list are the patriot businesses.

    We have the entire E-Verify database on our website. You can look up any business, non-profit or government to see if it is using E-Verify to ensure that jobs go to U.S. citizens and legal immigrants.

    ACTION: Look up any employer here:

    More than 200,000 employers are now using E-Verify. And you can find them in our database.

    Just remember that most of the illegal aliens in your community are there because somebody not using E-Verify is giving them jobs.

    You can make it socially unacceptable in your community to hire illegal aliens. You don't have to prove that the hiring takes place. You just have to prove that an employer isn't using E-Verify. We provide the proof. Then make the refusal to use E-Verify a sign of willingness to hire illegal aliens.

    When employers don't respond to your civil inquiries, public shame is the next step. You can figure out how you want to do it, but we will be providing you methods along the way.

    ACTION: If you are an employer and are not yet signed up for E-Verify, please do so immediately so you can avoid the embarrassment of having your fellow NumbersUSA members targeting you.

    NumbersUSA has been using the system for years. It takes about a minute to run a new hire through the system. But either you or one of your employees will have to spend 3 or 4 hours at the beginning to get you registered. It is so worth it. Plus, don't you want to set an example?


    Enter the name of the business and probably the state and city.

    If nothing comes up, it may because the business is listed under a slightly different name. You can be more sure if a business isn't listed if you look at all the businesses of an area.

    For example, if you live in a small city or town, you may just want to enter the city and state in the search engine and take a look at all employers in your area who are being responsible and using E-Verify. Everybody not listed is keeping options open to hire illegal workers.

    If you are in a bigger city, you may want to just enter a zip code that helps you narrow down the search. You can use a zip code if you are in a rural area, too.

    Our website editor, Chris Chmielenski, notes that you should not make immediate assumptions if you don't at first find an employer:

    "Our search engine is very particular, so if you don't find a company, it doesn't necessarily mean they're not using E-Verify. For instance, food distributor FreshPoint is all one word, so they won't come up if you insert a space between the two words.

    "Another common error could come up when searching for franchises. Your local McDonalds is likely owned and operated by a business group that is not located in your city, and they may not have the word 'McDonalds' in their title."

    So what do you do?

    You first phone, write or personally visit a business and note that you don't find them listed with DHS as using E-Verify to screen out illegal aliens. Ask them if they are listed under another name or is it true that they don't use E-Verify.

    That is very civil and is a great way to open up the issue.

    Focus on businesses you suspect of hiring illegal aliens.

    These are the ones that are really angering you, aren't they? Look up all of those and start contacting them. It won't take much for you to be sure they aren't using E-Verify. At that point, do all you can to publicize the apparent willingness of the business to employ illegal foreign workers instead of U.S. workers.

    This is just the start of a long campaign. We will be giving you more tips along the way. And we will be sharing your various battle and success stories as you send them to us.

    You can put unemployed Americans back to work if you start using our database to pressure employers in your local area to use E-Verify.
