A new Westat report (commissioned by DHS) shows
that identity theft presents a major gap in E-Verify's ability to
identify illegally present immigrants. The report also shows E-Verify
still only has a 96% accuracy rate for legal workers, basically unchanged over the last two years. And until the
program is much more accurate and Congress gives adequate protections
to workers objecting to an E-Verify non-confirmation, the program's
expansion should not be promoted.
