Trump urged to nationalize ‘E-Verify’ after 700 percent surge in arrests of illegal workers

President Trump is being encouraged to sign an executive order on E-Verify after immigration police said that arrests of illegal immigrant workers and employers surged 700 percent.

Led by advocates of tighter immigration laws, Trump is getting advice to nationalize the E-Verify system that the federal government uses to make sure that contractors are hiring employees that are legally allowed to work in the United States.

“There are many changes that could be made to the immigration laws that would enable the United States to gain control over its illegal population,” said Andrew R. Arthur, a former immigration judge.

Back in the nineties I worked for a concrete construction company in northern Virginia, I ran a crew of 17 men and all but one of them was illegal. I know this for a fact. they all used a SS number that started with 703 the area code number for northern Va. and they admitted they were illegal and told me how they got into the country.E-Verify should have been instituted years ago.

After standing in line at a gas station to pay for gas and watching the very large number of hispanics purchasing money orders to send back home to Mexico or places further south...I found myself wondering if it would be possible to stop selling money orders without proper identification. Possibly stopping money orders all together. Illegals come here to send money orders home to another country. How could that be stopped?

Better yet tax the money orders being sent out of country and use that to build the wall. Then Mexico really will be paying for it!
