Leonard Lance, US Representative (R-NJ), in a July 31, 2017, as quoted in a July 31, 2017 press release, "Lance Bill Would Mandate E-Verify," available at, stated:

“E-Verify is a proven system for making sure job opportunities are for American workers. E-Verify is a deterrent against illegal immigration and expanding it to new workplaces will make sure legal, American workers are not shut out of employment. We need E-Verify up and running and we need all employers to participate to make it effective.”
