Trump Leaves Mandatory E-verify Out Of DACA Amnesty Discussions With Congress
The above is my version of title by John Binder at Breitbart.
I’ve been writing about this and talking about it on the Show. Trump has dropped mandatory E-verify from the Amnesty negotiations with Congressional leaders pushing DACA/DREAM Act Amnesty.
Of course, E-verify by itself isn’t enough to stop illegal aliens from taking American jobs. There’s a federal law that was probably written by the Chamber of Horrors that stipulates that illegal aliens working for a paycheck CANNOT be checked by their employers for their immigration status. Since about 10 million illegals are working for a paycheck, that’s de facto Amnesty already for those illegals. Now, ICE can certainly check their status so it’s not a total loss of enforcement.
E-verify can ONLY be used by employers on prospective and new employees.
A national mandatory E-verify law would require all U.S. employers to use E-verify before hiring workers whether they suspected those workers to be illegal aliens or not.
Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) has just such a bill in the House–HR 3711–but as written gives many employers 2-3 YEARS to comply!
The Chamber is very powerful and is fighting mandatory E-verify like mad. E-verify is only mandatory for ALL employers in one or two states–Arizona (known as LAWA) and South Carolina.
