In Alabama they have started to enforce immigration laws. The effect was that many jobs previously held by illegal aliens have opened up for U.S. citizens.

The lines to fill these jobs was long and they were being filled with U.S. citizens.

If we want more jobs for citizens, we in Oregon should also enforce our immigration laws. One good start would be to make E-Verify mandatory, eliminating illegal aliens and opening many jobs for our own U.S. citizens.
