NEW REPORT SHOWS E-VERIFY STILL HIGHLY INACCURATE

Rate this Entry
A new Westat report (commissioned by DHS) shows
that identity theft presents a major gap in E-Verify's ability to
identify illegally present immigrants. The report also shows E-Verify
still only has a 96% accuracy rate for legal workers, basically unchanged over the last two years. And until the
program is much more accurate and Congress gives adequate protections
to workers objecting to an E-Verify non-confirmation, the program's
expansion should not be promoted.

    The question you have to ask is, as opposed to what? E-Verify may be the best out there. If there isn't a better system in place then use it and expand it.

    Utah's New Law: Hire An Illegal Immigrant, Go To Jail

    Employers in Utah could be among the first in the country to face criminal charges for failing to verify their workers' immigration status under a bill advancing in the Utah Legislature.

    Several states require businesses to use the federal E-Verify program but generally only under threat of financial penalties.

    Under the bill, Utah employers who fail to comply could face a class B misdemeanor, punishable by up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

    Bill supporters say enacting the measure would stop identity theft and encourage illegal immigrants to leave Utah.

    Opponents say including criminal penalties could clash with federal law and place an undue burden on businesses.

    The bill cleared a legislative panel Friday and goes to the Senate floor.

    A lot of false positives and false negatives. If this were a medical device being tested the US FDA would not even pass this.

    But since it's there already then just stop it's expansion (if not stop it temporarily) and focus more effort and money on identity theft first before they think on expanding or re-applying it.

    Funny that the American public like money to put on things that are very inefficient, ineffective and unnecessary like e-verify, border fences, war on Iraq but would not like to put money like HC reform.
