Strengthening Immigration Reform: Enhancing E-Verify Checks & Balances

May 16, 2013 | Press Releases

Grassley amendment will enhance E-Verify enforcement mechanisms (Amendment)

HOW THE AMENDMENT STRENGTHENS THE BILL: To improve the E-Verify system, Grassley 31 (as amended), requires weekly reports from the Director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) of people reported as not authorized to work when processed through the E-Verify system.

All of the amendments submitted to the Committee on the Judiciary are available online for review here
