WASHINGTON, July 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today's announcement by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) claiming that it has "strengthened employment eligibility verification," in fact significantly weakens an executive order issued by President Bush exactly one year ago, charges the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). The policy directive issued by Secretary Janet Napolitano would protect illegal aliens currently employed by federal contractors and in the private sector.

According to the DHS announcement, federal contractors would be required to use E-Verify to check the work authorization only of new employees. The Bush executive order that the Obama administration has repeatedly delayed implementing, would have required that federal contractors verify that all employees -- including existing ones - be screened using E-Verify.

At the same time as they were punching holes in a policy designed to prevent illegal aliens from being paid by the taxpayers, the administration took steps to protect illegal aliens currently working in private sector jobs. Secretary Napolitano also announced that DHS is rescinding the No-Match rule. No-Match requires employers who are notified by the Social Security Administration (SSA) that workers' Social Security numbers do not match data in SSA's database to either correct the discrepancies, or terminate those employees. By rescinding the No-Match rule, the administration is effectively giving employers license to retain illegal workers.
