For anyone who is interested, there's a petition in the White House to ask President Trump to sign an executive order mandating e-verify.

Done. I have a neighbor who was FINALLY approved for disability after 4 years only to be denied because SOMEONE was using his SS# in El Paso! Now they are fighting for stolen identity.... in order to get his Disability back to approved.....

Now the IRS has admitted they KNOW of the SS# issues and won't even do a damn thing about it.

If e-verify was mandatory the "worker" would have been flagged as name, number and last known address would NOT have matched!

There is enough vocal support for this to pass outside of the fact that the business community wants no part of it. It would mean rising wages which is not good for the re-election coffers.

Why not demand a vote instead so you know who is for this and who is bought off and lying?

No administration, past or present, has the guts to do anything about implementing e-verify. Talk seems to be cheap.

I have been using e-verify fir three years (we need it in place for government contracts). My experience has been 100% positive. The information returned on employees is correct and straightforward. The system has several double checks to ensure information is correct. Plus there are occasional webinars and other learning and update tools provided on its website.

Too bad some of our law makers, politicians and business owners are against implementing e-verify. It's pretty obvious they want to continue looking the other way and continue to claim it's a faulty system. Their arguments are specious.

Why dismiss this? There's a lot of unlikely things happening nowadays.

Do honesty believe e-verify is one of them?

Someone is making an effort to push this forward. Why not get behind it instead of dismiss it?

Identity theft is a big problem so anything that can prevent it should be implemented.

Why should people have to beg for this? Politicians and the president say they support it. Where is the disconnect? You should have to beg to get them to do what they told you they would support if elected?
