It's just too bad his opponent is a total dipstick........'cos Reid is an ignorant liar who doesn't deserve a vote from anyone.

The latest polls show him slipping down quite a bit in the senate race in Nevada.

If he is this out of touch with reality, he clearly should not be in a position to influence the legislative process in this country. Only someone who has been living in a cave in a remote location does not realize illegal aliens dominate the construction industry. He is a pandering liar, period.

Unfortunately, even if he had required E-verify there would still be people slipping through the system. E-verify isn't very difficult to beat.

Unfortunately, as long as illegals can obtain “valid” yet stolen IDs, the E-Verify system will continue to be flawed. However, it’s better than nothing. At least it can detect a percentage of illegal workers.

I read an article the other day that stated that e-Verify is 97% effective.

As far as I'm concerned, a three percent failure rate is quite acceptable.

At the LEAST e-verify stops them at the TIME of hire (they have 3 days to enter the data from time of hire I believe) - rather than the old system of paper I-9s that just get filed away by the employer and may NEVER be audited for accuracy.

I think requiring e-verify by LAW - AND requiring by LAW that a nice big sign saying "this firm employs e-verify upon hire" would deter quite a FEW from even ATTEMPTING to get through with fraudulent/stolen IDs.
