We should be getting tougher on illegals not softer!
However, a watered-down form of mandatory E-Verify has an excellent chance of becoming law in North Carolina. The Protect North Carolina Workers Act (HB 35) passed the House and will likely be taken up by the state Senate when it returns in late August. The Protect North Carolina Workers Act would require mandatory E-Verify for every new employee hired by a firm with 15 or more employees. Legislators have exempted domestic and farm workers from E-Verify, likely because they believe those sectors of the economy would be devastated if they also had to comply with the mandate.
