On March 10, 2009, I voted to reauthorize the E-Verify program as part of the Omnibus Appropriations Bill (P.L. 111-8). This program will help cut down on unauthorized employees working for U.S. companies. Later the same year, on July 9, 2009, I also voted to support the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act of 2010 (H.R. 2892), which included the reauthorization of the E-Verify program for an additional three years. I understand this program is not without its flaws, and will continue working to make necessary improvements that protect American workers and help employers comply with the law.
If you have further questions about this or any other issue, please contact me with your concerns.
