Immigration Crackdown: Nationwide use of E-Verify goes before committee

Washington Times: "After months on the back burner, the immigration issue returns to the political forefront Thursday when House Republicans take the first steps to require all businesses to verify their employees’ work status electronically.

The action starts in the House Judiciary Committee, which will begin considering a bill to mandate use of E-Verify, a government-run system that enables businesses to check potential employees’ Social Security numbers against a government database. The program is available currently on a voluntary basis."
