Whiting) in which justices ruled 5-3 that the state of Arizona could mandate the use of the federal E-verify system as a means of screening new hires, other states are following Arizona’s lead to mandate it’s use.
E-Verify Background The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (“IRCA”) mandates that U. employers verify the identity and employment eligibility of newly hired employees through completion of a Form I-9 and review of required documents.
IRCA contains civil and criminal penalties for failure to comply, including potential fines of up to ,000 per unauthorized worker.
But the ACLU pointed out perhaps the biggest problem with a program like E-Verify. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in partnership with the Social Security Administration (SSA).
In attempting to solve a problem involving just a tiny fraction of workers, it brings the United States much closer to a "permission society," where the government grants or revokes the privilege to feed and clothe your family. It’s used to verify an employee’s eligibility to legally work in the United States.
Democrats claim that immigration reform will reduce the federal deficit.

Verify I-9, LLC is authorized to provide E-Verify verification services in all 50 states including those listed below.
As an enhancement to the I-9 process, the federal government has created E-Verify, which is a free Internet-based system operated by the Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) and the Social Security Administration that allows participating employers to confirm an individual’s employment eligibility by inputting information gathered during the I-9 process.
The system either confirms the individual’s eligibility to work or issues a tentative non-confirmation, which requires further action by the individual to validate his/her authorization to work.
