Businesses shouldn’t be allowed to hire unauthorized immigrants because that creates an incentive for further illegal immigration. Creating a mandatory E-Verify system ensures compliance, and phasing it in gradually for various categories of businesses gives employers time to adjust without creating an undue burden.
Mandatory E-Verify would be expensive, difficult to administer, and harmful to certain groups, including agricultural workers and Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders. This bill would depress working conditions and wages for all Americans and immigrants.
