This is from the Numbers USA website:

We have just received reassurance from our allies on the Hill that the enemies of E-Verify got the message -- at least for the moment.

Negotiations are supposed to be back on track for re-authorizing E-Verify without any seeds of self-destruction.


(Like many government programs, it has to be re-authorized every few years. If Congress doesn't re-authorize it by November, it will be eliminated, and illegal aliens will have pretty much free run of any job they want in America.)

Leaders of the U.S. House know that they would face a gigantic public backlash if they were to directly and clearly kill the popular E-Verify program, so opponents have been toying with a sneaky amendment that would allow Congress to kill E-Verify next year simply by not taking a certain kind of funding action.
