The US Chamber of Commerce, in a statement given by Randel K. Johnson, the Chamber's Senior Vice President of Labor, Immigration, and Employee Benefits, to the US House Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security on Feb. 27, 2013, available at, stated:

“[T]he U.S. Chamber supports E-Verify…

The U.S. Chamber recognizes that an enhanced employment verification system with obligations by employers must be part of any immigration reform package. We accept that there must be adequate penalties for an employer’s failure to complete the employment verification process, but we insist that there be one, single national policy and uniform enforcement with safe harbors for good faith employers and an integrated, single employment verification system.”
