SACRAMENTO - Assemblymember Paul Fong (D-Cupertino) today issued the following statement regarding the federal E-Verify mandate bill by Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas):

Assemblymember Fong: Rep. Smith's E-Verify mandate bill deeply concerns me. I do not support any flawed mandated system that costs jobs. E-verify was intended to be a voluntary process and requiring businesses to interview and hire in accordance with this faulty system is not in the best interest of businesses or workers.

I've introduced a bill in the California Legislature, AB 1236 that addresses the problems with E-Verify. E-verify has mistakenly identified U.S. citizens as non-citizens which prevents people from working. Mandating the use of E-Verify imposes an expensive, unnecessary regulatory burden on businesses. My bill protects our California workers and businesses. The mandated use of E-Verify would impose a major financial burden on businesses, especially small businesses. In addition, businesses will suffer from delayed hiring and the cost of mistaken identities. In this tough economy, we need to help businesses and grow and provide jobs, not set up barriers that cost jobs.

I strongly urge Rep. Lamar Smith to reconsider his legislation and the devastation that this law would bring to thousands of business and people across our great nation.

Assemblymember Fong serves as Chair of the Elections and Redistricting Committee and is a member of the Higher Education, Utilities and Commerce, and Water, Parks, and Wildlife Committees. In addition, Assemblymember Fong serves as Chair of the Select Committees on High Technology and Climate Change and Coastal Protection and is a member of the Select Committees on Aerospace, Biotechnology, Community Colleges, Domestic Violence, and Innovation and the Bay Area Economy. He represents Cupertino, Mountain View, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara and San Jose.

"...the Employment Acceleration Act of 2011 (AB 1236), would insure that city, county and state government cannot mandate the use of E-Verify on private business owners and would reaffirm that E-Verify is an optional program of the Federal Government."

This Jackwagon wants to BAN E-Verify because of regulatory burdens for local, state and Federal jobs, plus for the private sector.

The pandering makes me nauseous, and the outright lies and deception are such blatant, it is outrageouss.

Federal law supercedes state law. Let’s get H.R. 2164 passed mandating E-Verify nationwide.

No E-Verify, no workee

No E-Verify, no welfare

With appropriate safeguards, this would be wonderful. But hhfthere is too much common sense for the GOP. And the Dems pander to all segments of society, so they will not agree to it either.

Fong has nothing to worry about. If e verify is not accurate, US citizens slighted by the system can sue and have the courts put the system on hold. On the other hand if the system is reasonably accurate, then Congress needs to have the responsible federal agency improve on it and make it accurate. The IRS can track us down, why can’t e verify, unless globalists in the fed gov sabotage the system.
