Employers are the ones that need to be hit hard and fined. There also needs to be a better system than E-verify in place.

I've heard E-verify was a joke and after reading a few different sites about it, there seems to be a lot of truth in its inadequacy.

www.cato.org...


E-Verify is worse than a coin toss at identifying known illegal immigrant job seekers — 54 percent of illegal workers run through E-Verify are approved for work.

Worse, a small percentage of legal workers are erroneously flagged as unauthorized. Applying that error rate to the entire American workforce, E-Verify would flag between 400,000 and 900,000 U.S.-born workers as illegal. Thirty-six percent would have to wait at least eight days to resolve the error. Of those workers who are barred from employment after their appeal, a full six percent of them are eventually found to be legal.

The notion that an American citizen could be denied a job thanks to an ineffective and shoddy regulatory scheme is alarming and ought to be a non-starter for policymakers considering this mandate.

Fortunately, in this case, we don’t have to speculate. E-Verify mandates tried in Alabama, Arizona, Mississippi and South Carolina have proven ineffective. In those states, all new hires are supposed to be run through E-Verify, but only 54 percent actually were in 2013.


I had a book keeper that did books for a few different paint companies. She told me that tax time was a nightmare for her, especially the larger companies because of all the fake documents i.e.; SS#, Driver Lisc., Green Cards, etc...

Not sure what the solution is, something needs to be done about employers being held accountable for the hiring of illegals. Our laws for filing fraudulent gov documents also needs to be enforced. It's not fair that US citizens get the book thrown at them because they're locked in the system, while illegals claim ignorance and skate for the same crimes.

I was not aware of everify so thank you for that. I can see that as this is a government run program and mandated for use by contractors working on government projects. It sounds good in theory but once again as a government agency it seems to have set the goal but missed the kick,

One wonders, might not the government refine this program? Is that even possible? With all the billions clammering to be used for a wall, might not that money be well spent in establishing a program that works? One with teeth One that is reliable?

It almost sounds like it is noting more than a ''wink wink, nudge nudge'' among employers who are willing to settle for least amount of effort to look legal.

Its one of those "sounds great theoretically but fails in execution" scenarios. You would think they could fix the program faults somehow. They seem to have the right idea.

And yet I find nothing from much more recent documentation.


So?


So one donation, and one donation alone (that I can find), could be nothing more than trying to grease the wheels of bureaucracy.

Not enough evidence that that makes him a Republican. So, I guess you were just trying to stir the pot.

It was two separate donations.

Or it could be his political affiliation.

When you find him giving to a Democrat then you can make that claim, right now he's only given to Republicans. Deal with it.

That is because they pay off the politicians to look the other way.
The illegal immigration problem can be all blamed on the chamber of commerce and cheap labor express. This is just a drop in the bucket.

Come on man really. They can't comment. Yet. What if the employer did their jobs and vetted all via the FEDS system or each person had an illegally obtained Social Security Card, which when checked by the employer were given the green light to hire. Yea, it happens all of the time and maybe one of the illegals has your grandfathers Social Security number. Think about it. Yes, its that bad out there.

Also how don't we know whether the Feds verification system is also compromised. We don't.



Everify must work though otherwise why would many of the states reject it where illegals are high in numbers. The politicians in those states are being paid off to reject it by the business.

"Owners" have little latitude when a stolen ID comes up as genuine 😎


Stolen ID has a picture.

Also E-verify uses a social. You also have to have two forms of ID (unless you have a passport, which satisfies the ID requirement).



Also everify has a national database with a picture of the person in it.
Pedro who no habla english and uneducated wants to work at the chicken factory would have to hack into the system to change the picture on fake card to his.

The fact that the states with the most illegals reject everify speaks volumes about what is going on.

The ironic part is I'm fine with the wall, anti illegal immigration.... But Everify easily is the best solution, which will do more than the wall IMO.

No one is going to come if the jobs are cut in half. You'll still have construction companies who pay under the table.... But factories will have to comply.

Two minor donations from years ago is flimsy. You should learn to deal with that.

Certainly. And as you point out, this problem does indeed extend to and beyond the ''chamber of commerce''. The extent of the cover up here, the conspiracy if you will is the almost total lack of public awareness that is focused at this end of the illegal worker conundrum rather than all the hoopla on those workers illegality itself.

Well, at least that's one thing you aren't salty about. You need to work on the rest.

Exactly my point. You need to work on that, since that wont happen.

If you think I'm fawning over it, then you fail to understand why I, and many others, voted for Trump.

Where has your stewing gotten you?

Thinking? It's kinda apparent when you cannot admit that obvious Republican is obvious.

Into this rather scintillating repartee with you.
