E-Verify Mandatory for Federal Contractors

Nick Fishman

This is a reminder that all Federal Contractors are mandated to use E-Verify to confirm employee’s right to work status in the United States, effective September 8, 2009.

How to Comply
Employers must establish an account with the Department of Homeland Security by completing a Memorandum of Understanding. An account can be set up directly with DHS or through an approved channeling agent. Once the MOU has been approved, access to the E-Verify database will be activated. The employer must then have the employee complete an I-9 form and query the database within the first 48 hours of a new hire’s start date to determine if they have a legal right to work in the United States.

There are only two possible results of the query: Confirmation of the person’s legal right to work or a Tentative Non-Confirmation. In the event of a Tentative Non-Confirmation, employees are given 8 business days to resolve the issue with the Social Security Administration and, or DHS.

    As patriotic Americans we cannot afford to stop pursuing full, mandated E-Verify. Without it our countries businesses will be overrun by illegal workers in every sector of industry. The circumstances have now become so critical, owing to the millions of jobless citizens, legal residents that our government needs to insist full operation of the computer based application. E-Verify is a valuable tool that has expanded to a growing number of honest businesses that want to participate in the removal of foreign nationals. So far lawsuits from US Chamber of Commerce, ACLU have exposed hundreds of anti-American sovereignty groups, who have demanded the unfettered flow of foreign aliens stealing into the workplace. The federal courts have not played along and now contractors to the Federal government must implement E-Verify or not expect a contract?

    However, there is a toxicity amongst the Democrats and Republicans, who have an irrational view and are eager to destroy any immigration enforcement at our undermanned border or entrants who overstay knowingly their visits by jet. As it stands a path to citizenship, espoused as Immigration reform wants to legalize all those already here, but now its on-hold tell after the health care debacle. Can anybody imagine if foreign countries supported their citizens that America would not be suffering the problems of foreign workers and their families crowding the emergency rooms of major cities, educating their children and feeding off the limited benefits afforded the US population? E-verify must not be undermined or thrown into the waste pit of good immigration bills. 202-224-3121 is the Washington switchboard, to express your irate feelings and anguish at Senators and Representatives of both parties. Just like E-Verify if its not used correctly, Health care for all Americans will be inundated with illegal immigrants. They keep declaring no health care treatment for any illegal people, but unless a program such as E-Verify is not operational How can we distinguish from the legal population and those who have broken immigration laws? If a public option becomes law, there has to be a substantial way, to identify those those who are not entitled to any new health care reform?
