E-Verify becomes mandatory for federal contractors and subcontractors
HispanicSMB Blogs By Hispanic SMB on 9/16/2009
E-Verify was started five years ago as a pilot program to help businesses verify their employees work eligibility status. The free internet-based system has been on a voluntary basis up until now. However, now all federal contractors and subcontractors will be required to use the verification system to check if their employees are legally eligible to work in the United States. This new mandate applies to current employees already on the payroll. To date, almost 150,000 companies have signed up for the program hoping to save thousands of dollars in fines should their company find themselves the subject of an audit from ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency).

HispanicSMB Blogs By Hispanic SMB on 8/12/2009
In the past year, the number of illegal immigrants crossing the border into the U.S. has reached the lowest level of the past ten years. This phenomenon has been extrinsically associated with the actual economy, the participation of state and local police in the capture of illegal aliens in connection with ICE and Customs and Border Protection (CBP), as well as the enormous civil sanctions that employers are facing for employing illegal aliens after the E-Verify program have been established and will allow any employer to determine whether or not the documents presented in support of proof of legal residence are valid or fraudulent.
