Your Employees Must Be Legal Residents Act

Senate Bill

To ensure that organizations receiving federal contracts are employing legal Atlasian residents.

Be it enacted,

Quote
1.  Any organization seeking or holding federal Atlasian government contracts or accepting federal funding which is found to knowingly employ undocumented immigrants will be ineligible for new contracts for two years following the discovery of these immigrants.

   A. The SoIA shall compile an effective and efficient procedure by which companies can verify the status of their employees. The terms of the above shall apply once the procedure is in place and companies have been given a “reasonable” chance to utilize it.

   B. Contracts that deal with critical defense or emergency related procurement may be given exemption based on the situation, but must be required to take steps to ensure the legality of their workforce going forward and the Department of Internal Affairs shall certify they have done so.

2.  The bill is not affecting contracts or funding for companies, that employed undocumented immigrants without knowing their legal status. Said companies are required to remove any undocumented employees within a period of two months instead.

3. No provision in this bill shall be construed as to condone or legalize any violations of current laws regarding racial profiling and civil rights. Any and all such violations shall be investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of existing law at the time of the violation's occurrence.

Why is this legislation not being allowed on the floor?
Because it's stupid.


If stupid bills arent allowed on the floor, then unfortunately I guess we wont get to consider your moronic bill either. At least, if the PPT is fair.

You got a bill about horse cocks, when's the last time anyone listened to you about what to take seriously?

My horsecox bill was funnier and yet more serious and substantive than anything you've ever proposed. If you want to meme make sure u r being funny next time instead of just a crasshole.

Spark the Numbskull has five bills on the floor from LAST SESSION


This is conduct unbecoming of a Senator.

I do not support bringing these articles forward. I do not take this decision lightly, but I believe this does not reach the high bar set for removal from office. I do think the introduction of these articles however, will have a positive effect, as the President will learn his lesson. Ultimately, I believe that the president has learned from this case.

This is what you call learning his lesson?

Executive Order 55:10:

NOW, THEREFORE, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the Republic of Atlasia, and as President of the Republic of Atlasia and Commander in Chief of the armed forces of the Republic of Atlasia, it is hereby ordered as follows:

1. The Attorney General is hereby authorized and directed to take possession of all or any property of the following as he may deem necessary in the interests of national security and defense:

-The Southern Government
-Federalist Party of Atlasia



OBD, President of the Republic of Atlasia

Quote
Executive Order 55:11

Whereas the successful prosecution of the war requires every possible protection against espionage and against sabotage to national-defense material, national-defense premises, and national-defense utilities as defined in Section 4, Act of April 20, 1918, 40 Stat. 533, as amended by the Act of November 30, 1940, 54 Stat. 1220, and the Act of August 21, 1941, 55 Stat. 655 (U.S.C., Title 50, Sec. 104);

Now, therefore, by virtue of the authority vested in me as President of the Republic of Atlasia, and Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy, I hereby authorize and direct the Attorney General and the Military Commanders whom he may from time to time designate, whenever he or any designated Commander deems such action necessary or desirable, to prescribe military areas in such places and of such extent as he or the appropriate Military Commander may determine, from which any or all persons may be excluded, and with respect to which, the right of any person to enter, remain in, or leave shall be subject to whatever restrictions the Attorney General or the appropriate Military Commander may impose in his discretion. The Attorney General is hereby authorized to provide for residents of any such area who are excluded therefrom, such transportation, food, shelter, and other accommodations as may be necessary, in the judgment of the Attorney General or the said Military Commander, and until other arrangements are made, to accomplish the purpose of this order. The designation of military areas in any region or locality shall supersede designations of prohibited and restricted areas by the Attorney General under the Proclamations of December 7 and 8, 1941, and shall supersede the responsibility and authority of the Attorney General under the said Proclamations in respect of such prohibited and restricted areas.

I hereby further authorize and direct the Attorney General and the said Military Commanders to take such other steps as he or the appropriate Military Commander may deem advisable to enforce compliance with the restrictions applicable to each Military area here in above authorized to be designated, including the use of Federal troops and other Federal Agencies, with authority to accept assistance of state and local agencies.

I hereby further authorize and direct all Executive Departments, independent establishments and other Federal Agencies, to assist the Secretary of War or the said Military Commanders in carrying out this Executive Order, including the furnishing of medical aid, hospitalization, food, clothing, transportation, use of land, shelter, and other supplies, equipment, utilities, facilities, and services.



OBD, President of the Republic of Atlasia


Even though I have policy disagreements with you I at least thought you were someone of integrity who is at least consistent in his beliefs but your votes in the past few months and especially your accomplice-ship to this charade have proven that I was gravely wrong to put any confidence in you, Senator.

To S019:

Fair enough. You do make some valid points. That being said, I think as soon as the instigators of this conflict move on, since the conflict certainly can't go on forever, then the game will be in the same place it was and likely with the side effect of some prospective players being dissuaded from joining a game that has become so toxic as of late. Activity is created by these dramatics but it's a short-lived burst of activity that certainly can't sustain the game for more than a few weeks or a month or two at the absolute most. I mean, OBD has said he won't run for reelection already, so I still think a left-wing candidate being elected President is very likely in June.
