U.S. work permit system stirs immigration controversy

Employers enter new hires' dates of birth, Social Security or passport numbers, and the system checks government databases to confirm whether they can legally work in the United States.

There is no controversey in this. The corporations just don't like e-verify. They want that cheap illegal labor.
