RI bill: Businesses would check immigration status - Boston.com: "Rhode Island businesses would stand on the front lines of efforts to crack down on illegal immigration under a legislative proposal to require employers to check the immigration status of every job applicant.
The measure is one of several proposals dealing with illegal immigration scheduled to go to a state Senate hearing Tuesday. The bill would require businesses with at least three employees to verify the legal residency status of all new hires through the federal E-Verify system. The online database allows employers to check whether an applicant is a citizen or otherwise allowed to work in the U.S."
