"RALEIGH, North Carolina (Reuters) North Carolina lawmakers on Saturday passed a bill requiring businesses with 25 or more employees to check the citizenship status of job applicants on a federal database called E-Verify.
After a 24-month phase-in period, the legislation will require about 40 percent of the state's businesses to verify the immigration status of potential hires."

Once we remove their other source of income (welfare from their anchors) by changing birthright citizenship it will be a slam dunk.

I lived in Hickory, NC when I was smaller and was absolutely shocked at how bad it got. Last time I visited in 07, I was utterly stunned at how much that nice city had transformed.

Should this be quoted as checking for work-authorization? Legal Permanent Residents are all work-authorized, and a non-immigrant can even file an I-765 to be able to work. TPS gets it too, you don't have to be a U.S. citizen to be authorized to work.

Why do we need to legislate a free gov't service?

E-Verify is an Internet-based system that allows businesses to determine the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States. E-Verify is fast, free and easy to use – and it’s the best way employers can ensure a legal workforce.
USCIS - E-Verify

USCIS - E-Verify
Cause people are MORE likely to use it to run off illegal aliens.

But it's almost like a forfeit:

A vote of 67 to 45 after changes being made to the original bill...

A 24-month phase-in period, ultimately covering only 40% of the employers...

And an exemption for agriculture companies that employ workers less than 90 days...

Even William Potter Gheen the Third is pouting over that...

The Federal government has an easy, free way to access work-authorization information, and it seems like it has to pull teeth for employers to use it?...

Yay, go team...
