  (Mr. WILSON of South Carolina asked and was given permission to 
address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. WILSON of South Carolina. Madam Speaker, the Bureau of Labor 
Statistics announced yesterday that the number of job openings is at 
its lowest point in 5 months. The number of available jobs dropped from 
3.7 million in March to 3.4 million in April. This fact shows that the 
President's failed policies are destroying jobs across our Nation and 
undermining families.
  Unemployment has been above 8 percent for 40 months, not including 
the millions who are underemployed or who have lost hope and are no 
longer looking for a job. And yet the President still believes our 
private sector is doing fine. In fact, sadly, now the President is 
offering work permits to illegal aliens to take jobs from hardworking 
  It is past the time for the President and his liberal colleagues in 
the other Chamber to pass the dozens of bipartisan job-creation bills 
which are stalled in the Senate graveyard.
  In conclusion, God bless our troops, and we will never forget 
September the 11th in the global war on terrorism.
