E-Verify and Drug Enforcement Problems UNSOLVED...
By Joey Garcia


June 06, 2011

I agree with Byron Whitesides on his topic of E-verify format. Not only that, why does the City of Ketchikan not comply with the drug test for new hires and old hands thereby corrupting other non-drug users/pushers to continue their trade within our city? I do not blame the Office of the Ketchikan City Mayor, but the office of the Gov. Parnell, referring to the response made by a certain Ms. Lien that the Office of the Governor has no jurisdiction in Ketchikan.

I even squirmed where do we go to alleviate the oversights of the implementation of the drug menace besetting us now? Do we have to run to our neighbors to get help, like Canada and maybe Russia, since we cannot run to Juneau?

As an American citizen and for all the senior citizens, let us rally for the implementation of the E-verify law and the enforcement of drug couriers and users in order to clamp down the illegal use and distribute, and to finally create an enforcement of such matters, at least the taxpayers money can be put to use?
