San Diego - The White House announced that it would create 600,000 new jobs in the next 100 days. This is leaving many lawmakers upset that the E-Verify employee verification program has been pushed back for a fourth time to September 8.

E-Verify is an online employment verification system operated jointly by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Social Security Administration (SSA). The simple and effective program allows participating employers to check the work status of new hires online by comparing information from an employee’s I-9 form against SSA and DHS databases.

Currently the program is being used by more than 100,000 employers who have checked approximately 6.5 million potential employees in the 2008 fiscal year, according to DHS.

The popularity of this free and effective program has been overwhelming, says Meg Whitman, 2010 GOP California governor front runner. Republican lawmakers believe that this program is an essential tool for employers who are committed to maintaining a legal workforce.


In the end, delaying E-Verify will result in less enforcement and more rewards for those here illegally, according to Bilbray. “Americans citizens are the ones who will lose."

Obama administration stalls E-Verify for the 4th time leaving illegal immigration employment open

E-verify is the most accurate and effective tool that the US has in detecting illegal alien workers. Yet Obama continues his ethnocentric appeasement while millions of Americans are running out of unemployment benefits.

With millions of LEGAL U.S. Citizens unemployed, one would think that President Obama would take a step in ensuring that these "stimulus jobs" would employ ONLY Legal U.S. citizens..

If Americans continue to be unemployed in these record numbers and The Obama Administration CONTINUES to try to "Spin" the Economy by saying "it's getting better, the stimulus is working", the American public will hopefully see this for what it really is.. a Scam!

This government is being lead by someone who supported driver's licenses for illegals, the DREAM Act and the 2007 amnesty bill.

I'm not surprised at all.
