Immigration Reform, Yes; E‑Verify, No
Once immigration reform aligns the law with the needs of the American economy and people, the pressures that have driven some to pursue greater "internal enforcement" will be relieved. Congress should not dragoon employers further into immigration-law enforcement by making the "E-Verify" government background check a national mandate. Dan Griswold will discuss the changes to immigration law that will make draconian enforcement measures unnecessary. Jim Harper will show how E-Verify would lay the groundwork for a national ID and even greater government control over all Americans' lives.
