They are not denying that they are illegal and using stolen IDs. Rather, that they were already employed, which they feel should exempt them from the “new hire” E-Verify requirement. If they win this case, it will be yet another loophole to facilitate illegal immigration.

Immigrants fired by two suburban Chicago businesses are testing an Illinois law that sets the nation’s toughest limits on verifying eligibility for employment.

Six Latin American immigrants Tuesday afternoon filed the first complaints under a new Illinois law that restricts the verification to new hires only. One of the six worked in Bolingbrook for a staffing firm until September.

The others, all women, worked at a Red Roof Inn in Hoffman Estates until this spring. They include María Cervantes, a single mother of four in Carpentersville.

A Red Roof Inn statement accuses the workers of providing false Social Security numbers and says this justified their dismissal.

So the free social services for 4 weren't enough? Those jobs need to go to unemployed Americans.

It would be mean-spirited to separate them from their children.

Yes, it would be just like when the Jews were seperated during the Holocaust or the Blacks were seperated during Slavery..

Again, Illegal Aliens are using the Legal system, a system that they didn't believe in following until it was convenenient to help enable them to BREAK the law!

My company is instituting E-Verify since we work on federal projects. ALL employees are subject to verification no matter when they were hired. That's the word from our HR department. I don't know if that's the law or we are just going a step further than is required...

Assuming they couldnt fill the job with a legal citizen how does employing a non citizen with 4 kids contribute more to the economy than what she receives in financial assistance for the kids.

Federal contractors are required to use E-Verify on all employees. Apparently, in IL they can only use E-Verify on new hires at companies that don’t have contracts with the government. Illegals hired prior to E-Verify are essentially given a free ride.
