In the wake of the Senate passing their version of the immigration amnesty bill, the 'Gang of 8' celebrated another victory in which they secretly, and ignorantly, forged legislation that doesn't cure the root problem. In fact, it appears that only one Senator actually read the entire bill before the vote, and found in it language which would allow the IRS to fine businesses who hire regular citizens over newly amnestied illegals.

We can’t possibly expect our Senators to read a 1200 page bill before voting on it. Can we? Well Thank God Ted Cruz read it. Not only did Cruz read it but he schooled anyone who would listen from the Senate floor on Tuesday. Cruz found a loophole that actually penalizes an employer $5000 for hiring a citizen over a legalized alien. Seriously. You can’t make this stuff up. - Freedom Outpost via Political Realities
So like Obamacare, which the Congress and White House swore up and down would not cost the American people any extra money, the deceptions within the Immigration Reform Act appear specifically included to destroy American jobs to appease corporate desires for cheap labor. And once again it proves, our Congress is no longer a representative of the people, but a fascist bought and paid for entity that acknowledges their true masters in big business.
