But it is the right idea. Rep. Peter DeFazio has introduced a new House bill that would require the mandatory use of E-Verify for all businesses in the United States. The Triple E-VICT Act would help the 22 million Americans who can't find full-time work by ensuring jobs don't go to illegal aliens. Rep. DeFazio is a pro-environment Democrat who also understands the impact that high immigration levels, partly caused by illegal immigration, has on future environmental sustainability.
Good for him. It won't go anywhere, but at least it keeps the concept on the national stage.
