750,000 Veterans Are Unemployed. We need jobs not amnesty.

Post-9/11 veterans face a 10.2 percent unemployment rate – three percentage points higher than the national average – despite a corporate and government push to get vets into the workplace.

One food bank manager claims 40 percent of New York City veterans, 95,000 vets, require some form of food assistance.

This is food for thought considering 8.5 million illegal aliens are currently unlawfully employed in the U.S., and corporations from McDonald’s to Microsoft are lobbying for amnesty and an increase in legal immigration.

Today, the president honors veterans by laying a wreath at Arlington National Cemetery. Tomorrow, he and Congress must honor their sacrifice by making veterans and other struggling Americans a priority.
