Consider it this way. 1% error rate is great results when compared to the
fact that the PPACA is forcing 5% of the people off of their individual health
insurance policies. In fact if E-Verify was more widely used and enforced
starting in 2000 we would most likely only have 2 million people here without
Is there any other government agency that has an error rate less than 0.7-0.3
percent? "$2.1 billion in government expenditures alone over the
course of a decade."210 million per year is a small price to pay
to assure America's workforce fairness in the job market. We spend 113
billion a year to support business using illegal labor, and 4.2 billion in tax

It's time business became honest with Americans. Cato's use of a decade to make the number appear bigger shows their open
border agenda. I doubt their numbers, it only takes 15 minutes at most to run a
check, and there are fixes for people wrongly rejected, including keeping their
job until it's resolved. E-verify was passed in the 1986 reform, but never
E-verify doesn't result in increased costs for the HR dept. It replaces
error prone, inefficient, paper I9 process. This should actually save money, for

Type a social security number into the system and the feds usually respond in
less than 60 seconds.It's working well in AZ and other states.
It's working well for all federal contractors. The error rate is extremely
low. Some of these errors are caused by the potential "new hires". Not
everyone uses the same name on file with the social security admin. Some people
get married and fail to notify the SSA of their new name.
