Cathy Reisenwitz, writer and political commentator, stated in her Nov. 17, 2013 article for titled "E-Verify Turns Work into a Privilege, and Empowers the Surveillance State":

“The first problem with mandating E-Verify use is how much work it’s going to create for employers…

The E-Verify system requires all employers to go through the entire interview, offer, negotiation and acceptance process before they are allowed to check whether any applicant is eligible to work. Of course E-Verify’s propensity to put the kibosh on the hire at the end of the process will lead employers to discriminate against non-native born workers to save themselves the expense. Any expectation otherwise stretches credulity.”
