Comment: E-Verify Bill Faces Long Odds - House Judiciary Chairman Lamar Smith's Mandatory E-Verify bill faces long odds. Apart from near-unanimous opposition from Democrats, Mr. Smith faces opposition in his own party. The surprising news is that his Republican opponents are both from the pro-immigration and anti-immigration sides. Naturally, the few pro-immigration Republicans in the House recognize that only enforcement is not enough, true immigration reform must cover both enforcement and benefits. Interestingly, however, Mr. Smith is also being opposed by the anti-immigration Republicans. Rep. Barletta of Pennsylvania opposes Mr. Smith's bill since a federal finding on non-compliance may or may not be forthcoming as promptly as Mr. Barletta likes, effectively permitting businesses with undocumented employees to continue to operate, an outcome distasteful to Mr. Barletta. In effect, therefore, Mr. Barletta would rather there be myriad local and state standards for immigration enforcement, instead of a uniform, predictable, federal standard. In advocating such chaos, anti-immigrationists like Mr. Barletta reveal that they are against the rule of the law, and believe only in indiscriminate deportation.
