E-Verify only indicates if the person indicated on the ID is a legal resident.
Remember:

Enough 'pinpricks' will after a while force the illegals out of the USA------one can only go underground for so long.

The emotional stress will be too much-----especially having one's source of income threatened.

So they are breaking even more U.S. laws ? Wonder what would happen to me if I did that ?

The problem with e-verify as far as I understand it is that error rates of 4-2% have been reported. So you not only have illegal immigrants slipping through the cracks but there have been cases where us citizens were identified as not being legal residents. That is a huge flaw IMO.

You consider that a problem?? Why?? EVERYONE identified as " not being legal residents" is given the opportunity to rectify the error as soon as it's discovered. I know I'd want the error rectified if the system erroneously identified ME as an illegal worker.

Nothing is perfect, especially if the government is involved, but a 2-4% error rate is PERFECTLY acceptable as long as there is a means to correct said errors.

My bad that was a typo- the error rates have been reported as 4-20%. The articles I've read have indicated that even if you are a legal resident and get caught up in it then it takes a while to prove that you are legal and during that period you are out of work. So yes I do see that as a flaw.

You get 60 days to straighten it out with Social Security, and you DON'T lose your job in the meantime. Seems pretty simple to me...

I agree and as you stated in an earlier post- I too would want to know if there was a problem with my ssn-so I could rectify it.

A simple Google search led me to this...

Leadership Journal: Debunking the ‚€œE-Verify Error Rate‚€Ě (http://www.dhs.gov/journal/leadership/2008/05/debunking-e-verify-error-rate.html - broken link)

It seems that the 'error rate' is significantly lower than even I thought...
