Chuck Grassley, MA, US Senator (R-IA), in a Jan. 24, 2017 press release, "Grassley E-Verify Bill Promotes Accountability for Employers," available at Grassley's Senate website, stated:

“Businesses across the country have opted to use the E-Verify system to help comply with our immigration laws. E-Verify is a proven tool for employers, including myself, that helps reduce incentives for illegal immigration and safeguards job opportunities for Americans and other legal workers. Expanding the system to every workplace [with a mandate] will improve accountability for all businesses and take an important step toward putting American workers first.”
