Comment: Mandatory E-Verify Bill Introduced - Rep. Lamar Smith introduced H.R. 2164 in the House today that makes the use of E-Verify mandatory for every employer. Under the provisions of the bill employers with more than 10,000 employees would have 6 months to comply; those with 500 to 10,000 employees would have 12 months to comply; those with 20 to 500 employees would have 18 months to comply; employers with 1 to 20 employees would need to comply within 24 months; and the employers with agricultural laborers would have 36 months to do so. Rep. Smith claims the bill would create jobs for Americans by making undocumented workers lose their jobs. Immigration Daily had predicted this development to follow close on the heels of the Supreme Court's decision on Arizona's E-Verify statute. Both our predictions have thus come true. Our third prediction, also made earlier, is now in the winds: we expect DREAM to be offered as a sweetener to this mandatory E-Verify bill, and for immigration to be thus a major issue in the forthcoming Presidential election. Stay tuned to Immigration Daily for the latest.
