American workers must press for E-Verify

There are 8 comments on the story from Jul 14, 2011, titled American workers must press for E-Verify. In it, reports that:

Between eight and ten million illegal aliens hold down full time jobs inside America. You can stop them and their illegal alien employers.

“Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) has introduced new legislation in the U.S. Senate that would require all employers in the United States to use E-Verify,” said Beck. “Sen. Grassley is the Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which oversees immigration policy in the Senate. He also sits on the Subcommittee on Immigration, Refugees and Border Security. Sen. Grassley's bill would make the E-Verify program permanent and would require all employers to use the system within 12 months of enactment.”

"E-Verify has already proven effective in combating the hiring of illegal aliens. It’s a simple tool for employers who want to comply with the law in a digital age when sophisticated, fraudulent documents are just the stroke of a computer key away," Senator Grassley said. "This legislation allows us to hold employers accountable while giving them the tools needed to abide by the law in their hiring practices."

After watching the news this morning reporting on the number of American citizens out of work, something has got to be done about illegals illegally working in America and the employers who employ them. It is not right for Americans to go without and illegals benefiting from programs installed for Americans not illegals to use in times of need.

I'm all for this but the bill says the law would take effect 12 months after it passes!! Make it 3 months.

What is this?

"Allows employers to use E-Verify before a person is hired, if the applicant consents;
• Requires employers to check the status of existing employees within 3 years;"

if the applicant consents? employees within 3 years?

They should be put through as a condition of employment and all working employees should be put through ASAP!

H.R. 2164 sounds better but it must be amended before passing.

"Perhaps the biggest valid knock against E-Verify by its critics has been the claim that it fails to catch illegal aliens who are using stolen identities, allowing them to keep their jobs.

The E-Verify process has been getting better and better each year in detecting stolen identities, but it still has a long way to go.

This is another reason why state or federal laws based solely on E-Verify are not nearly strong enough.

Fortunately, H.R. 2164 includes a process that we first worked on with Rep. Shuler (D-N.C.) for his SAVE Act.
Keep in mind that the problem with identity fraud is that illegal aliens are using names, birth dates and Social Security numbers that all match within the federal database. Thus, they slip through the tools listed above.

H.R. 2164 tackles this problem by ordering the Social Security Administration to identify the valid names/numbers that most likely are being used by identity thieves. The process starts by identifying employees with more than one employer reporting income to their Social Security number. Then, it looks for “unusual use patterns,” such as that the employers are in different geographic regions or represent different occupations, and so on.

The SS Administration would send a letter to that name at each address listed on a W-2 form with information on all the jobs that person supposedly is holding (some Social Security numbers are used for hundreds of jobs) and a toll-free number to call if the person is not working for all those employers and so believes he or she is the victim of identity theft.
Once the actual owner of the SS number comes forward and is identified, along with his/her place(s) of employment, that SS number will be locked down as belonging only to the actual owner, and all other employers will be notified to run the persons of that name and number through E-Verify, at which point they will be ordered fired.(All the safeguards for Americans and legal immigrants under E-Verify will be there under this “Multiple-Workplace Notification” system.)"

Lamar Smith’s E-Verify Bill Must Be Amended

"The pro-amnesty U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which was the loser in the Arizona case, conspired with House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, to introduce H.R. 2164, which unless amended, will reverse Arizona’s significant victory. This bill sounds helpful because it pretends to make E-Verify mandatory nationwide, but it actually ties the hands of the states.

H.R. 2164 pre-empts the states from requiring use of E-Verify unless employees work for state or local governments. That’s equivalent to giving amnesty to millions of illegal aliens who are currently employed in our country.

H.R. 2164 forbids the states from using their constitutional power to revoke licenses from businesses that hire illegal aliens unless there has been "a showing by the Secretary of Homeland Security, by clear and convincing evidence, that the employer had knowledge that an employee is an unauthorized alien." There is no likelihood that an Obama administration will prosecute employers who use E-Verify but fail to fire the illegals, or who contract out part of their workforce to circumvent the system."
