Obama and congressional leaders should publicly commit to reauthorize the E-Verify without any political strings attached. The House of Representatives approved a five-year reauthorization in September by a vote of 407-2.

But Senate consent was scuttled by a single member, Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), who demanded that more than 500,000 additional green cards be issued, a figure ominously close to the number of jobs our economy lost in November alone.

As president, Obama should fully implement his predecessorís executive order requiring that companies being paid by the public serve the public interest by employing only legally authorized workers.
