“E-Verify causes havoc in the workplace… In one year, before any national requirement, E-Verify unfairly gave employers a reason to fire almost 12,000 perfectly legitimate new hires.
And that’s just the collateral damage. E-Verify is much worse at its core task of flagging applicants who truly aren’t eligible to work. The last authoritative study showed that E-Verify flubbed this mission at least half the time, failing to identify anywhere from 37 percent to 64 percent of unauthorized workers.
If E-Verify were a commercial product, in short, no rational employer would pay to use it. It fails to identify illegal workers, and it turns away thousands of legal workers each year.”Dec. 1, 2014
