Another bill needs your help!
SB251 - http://le.utah.gov/~2010/htmdoc/sbillhtm/SB0251.htm
The bill will require employers to verify (using e-verify) that a worker is authorized to work in the United States. This is the same as has been used in Arizona and Oklahoma.
Doing so will:
- Help stop illegal immigrants coming to Utah by preventing them from obtaining a job with a legitimate employer and protect those jobs for legal workers (especially in our current economy).
- Curtail identity theft by illegal immigrants and fugitives seeking work. Much of the identity theft for work targets children’s identities (according to the Utah AG’s office).
- Businesses using e-verify reduce significantly their liability should ICE
etc find that illegal workers have managed to circumvent the system. Basically, if you use e-verify, ICE will not file charges against the company.
