Marco Rubio's immigration reform bill would expand E-Verify

Hidden within the depths of Marco Rubio’s immigration reform bill is a measure that would increase the use of E-Verify as a tool to stop employers from hiring undocumented workers. The proposed bill, which has received supported from both sides of the isle, would expand the use of government databases to verify workers are here legally.

Although critics have labeled it as an infringement of privacy, E-Verify is currently used in nine states as a measure to prevent hiring undocumented workers.

Sen. Rubio defends his immigration reform plan by saying “dramatically reducing [undocumented] immigration” can only be achieved through the use of tough, mandatory, and nationwide measures to check the workers’ immigration status.

“The only people who have to be afraid of the E-Verify system are illegal aliens and the employers who hire them.” said Pennsylvania House Committee Chairman Daryl Metcalfe, mid-2012 when she proposed an expansion of the controversial program.

FAIR Immigration Reform Activists protest the use of E-Verify, which would be expanded if Marco Rubio’s Immigration Reform bill were to pass.

Critics, however, say Marco Rubio’s immigration reform bill comes with added cost that small businesses can’t afford in this economy. In addition, groups like the Liberty Coalition claim E-Verify raises serious constitutional concerns. Critics of the database system say it’s too costly for small businesses to use, and it’s a serious constitutional concern.

“The expansion of this could go anywhere,” said David Bier, an immigration policy analyst at the Competitive Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C “We could monitor access to stadiums, monitor access to the Internet, to anything the government wanted based on an E-Verify database with every single American and every single legal resident in the United States.”
