U.S. Supreme Court Upholds E-Verify
There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding E-Verify and whether or not it was constitutional. While the federal government is beginning to make strides toward requiring E-Verify across the land, many states have performed and end around and enacted their own E-Verify legislation.
Law suits have been filed and the blogosphere and Twittersphere have been on fire as we all discuss the future of E-Verify. Well, it looks like the writing is on the wall. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld Utah’s HB116 that requires employers to use E-Verify, similar to the Arizona law. This appears to set the precedent. Combined with the President’s clear intention of making E-Verify MANDATORY in his plan for Building a 21st Century Immigration System, E-Verify appears to be here to stay.
