TRUMP BUDGET LAYS THE GROUNDWORK FOR NATIONAL E-VERIFY

Numbers USA: Pres. Trump called for making improvements to the E-Verify system in order to support a nationwide mandate in his 2018 budget request to Congress. Requiring all employers to use E-Verify is the top step in our ‘Ten Steps to Fixing the Broken Immigration Enforcement System‘.

Pres. Trump will need help from Congress, though, in making E-Verify mandatory for all employers. First, his request to set aside $15 million to make improvements to the system is just that — a request. Congress would need to make it official by including it in its FY18 DHS spending bill. Furthermore, requiring all employers to use the employment verification system would require legislation from Congress.

But budget requests tend to be clues to what an administration’s legislative priorities are, and it appears that mandatory E-Verify is a priority for the Trump administration.  The rest is here

  1. Ideally this should be done by Congress.

    But in reality, Pres. Trump can do it via an EO.
    Or the Dept of Labor, or IRS, or SSA, or any number of Agencies can just announce it as a new Regulation.

  2. THIS JUST IN:

    WHO’D HAVE THOUGHT THAT A CULTURE THAT BELIEVES THAT ILLEGALLY SNEAKING INTO THE USA IS OK WOULD STEAL ANYTHING??!!

    LMAO

    HEY, MAYBE IT’S JORGE RAMOS JUST TRYING TO TURN AN EXTRA $500K!!

  3. It would be interesting to see what penalties are contemplated for employers that try to circumvent a mandatory use of e-verify. There needs to be a way to identify those that use the system for legal workers but still employee illegals and pay them in cash under the table. Maybe allow for a tip-line where part of the fines (which should be load enough to hear some squealing but not so large as to jeopardize the business) is paid to the legal employees. Bet this would ensure compliance.
