Surprising E-Verify Problem

All federal agencies are supposed to use the E-Verify system to determine that new hires are eligible to work in the U.S. E-Verify is a Department of Homeland Security operation, in theory, but the data comes from the Social Security Administration.

It turns out that in the first six months of fiscal year 2009, 19% of Social Security's new hires were not cleared through E-Verify according to a report from Social Security's Office of Inspector General(OIG). Forty-four of those new hires would not have been cleared by E-Verify. (The report does not go into this point but probably in most cases, maybe even all cases, the problems preventing the individual from being cleared by E-Verify would have been technical and could have been corrected.) Of those new hires who were verified, 49% were not verified on a timely basis, which is within three days of being hired.

Social Security agreed with OIG that the agency needs to do better.

Federal Computer Week is running a story on this.

If unopposed the Democrats might pass the Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR), but their is a growing dam of US Workers and an even larger majority of the population, who are tired of these so called Liberal Progressives. China already owns us from our furious buying frenzy of many inferior goods and even some that have been highly toxic. Most of the importers don't care as long as they can make that extra dollar. The sale keeps going on and like fools we are, the cheaper the goods? Why do we not realize why America is in the dung pit? Same with--NOT CONSTRUCTING--a real originally designed border fence. Under contract to the US government, taxpayers have forked out millions of dollars for cameras and equipment that sits dormant along the border.

None of the politicians will mention this, because they have probably got some lucrative kick-backs from the contractors? While we are saving the world with taxpayers money, we still cannot keep illegal immigrants off US soil. We are still overrun by illegal workers, drug dealers and a whole compendium of criminals. If that is not enough, it is contempt for the people who pay the salaries of our public servants, but they still refuse to enforce immigration laws. Many are so corrupt that they have stalled or even killed laws, that would alleviate much of the pain of the 15 million Americans out-of-work. An example is E-Verify, that should have been permanent, not just for 3 years? another is 287 (g). The list of culprits are long, but Sen.Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and even Janet Napolitano leads the pack, who are out to appease La Raza and other ethnic caucuses, not to forget the massive financial lobbying of every business that wants to low wages with no benefits. This is not about just well-paid Americans or legal residents who have a good lifestyle, but about the less educated, non-skilled members of the population of any skin color who needs a jobs. Employment stolen by foreigners using doctored immigration papers and bogus Social Security numbers?

They have almost achieved this, with the collaboration of the Council of Foreign Relations, whose secret agenda is the free flow of immigrant worker--legal or illegal. Much the same as Europe who are having to deal with the same issues. E-Verify is the pariah businesses nightmare, because they can be audited by fed agents. But just like our flimsy immigration enforcement as entering this nation illegally, that is--ONLY--a porous civil infraction of our law. Unless we insist that the Senate-House make E-Verify in-perpetuity, we will still be no better off, although more companies are signing up for the federal program. Napolitano has weakened the 287 (g) police detainment program and lessened stealthily under the table the power of ICE raids around the country. Worst of all--nobody in Washington seems to have recognized, that just before the president signs the AMNESTY bill, millions more will try to get through the borders or fly in by jet.

I don't have to state to Americans the--BILLIONS--of dollars this will cost--as its costing now in free unrevealed monies that supports illegal immigrant families, stolen by the tax system. Never have I seen people so angry with this administration that is spending the lives of our grandchildren future. The blame cannot even be attributed to those in power now, but through many presidents have we been subsidizing the welfare of illegal families. IF YOU WANT TO APPROVE A TRILLION DOLLAR COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION POLICY THAT'S YOUR CHOICE. BUT IF YOU ARE TIRED OF SUPPORTING THE REST OF THE WORLD, YOU BETTER SPEAK UP BEFORE ITS TOO LATE. Call the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 to be connected to your Senator and Congressman and use the voting power of THE PEOPLE. NUMBERSUSA AND JUDICIAL WATCH for more frightening information and which lawmaker are signers to the potential AMNESTY and the immigration grades of the proponents.

They problem is not E-Verify it's SSA's use of it.

"Finally, one new hire received an SSA TNC because her citizenship status showed she was not eligible to work. According to SSA staff, this individual failed to provide the proper work authorization documentation and was terminated in June 2008."

The system works if used properly.
