Expert: Mandatory E-Verify ‘Is Coming’

Nationwide mandatory E-Verify, which would weed out the vast majority of American businesses hiring illegal aliens, may be coming sooner than expected.

President of the E-Verify Employer Agent Alliance David Fowler told GCN that E-Verify “is coming” because of expansion efforts by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and President Donald Trump.

“Mandatory E-Verify appears to be something that is coming,” Fowler told GCN. “With the new administration in, I think they’re going to push for this.”

E-Verify is a hiring tool where employers must fill out I-9 forms for each employee they hire in order to ensure that the employee is legally allowed to work in the U.S. Illegal immigrants are not permitted to work in the country.

In states which mandate E-Verify already, a study by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) found that there were fewer jobless Americans, as they did not have to compete for work against cheaper, illegal immigrant job-seekers.

There will always be Dee the table jobs,immigrant a doing cash work like mowing and cleaning.And many are committing identity fraud with people actually permitting them to use thier identity. So unless E verify can solve this.I don't know if it will solve the problem, just reduce it.

I am in an HR position and I am sorry to be the one to tell them this but illegals have access to SS# and states will issue them an ID. Or once they have a SS# and a name they can get a voter id card and a SS#. That is all you need to get a job. Oh and to vote. E-verify might slow this problem down but it will NEVER stop it. Its a fact.

I have seen this happen first hand an I know that this is all it takes. The majority of the SS# I see originate from Puerto Rico followed by Texas.
