Ah, the magical E-Verify solution. If we just required it for everything from getting a job to applying for any kind of government benefit and now qualifying for a mortgage, all would be right with America. In the mean time, innocent Americans are still getting caught in non-confirmation hell. For example, I'm trying to help a good friend who is a fourth generation American who inexplicably has been bounced in E-Verify. She has taken multiple trips to the Social Security Administration office and spent hours on the phone over the last several weeks trying to fix this glitch and yesterday her prospective employer ran her name again only to inform her that she is still not being cleared. E-Verify defenders would like people to believe that folks like my friend don't exist or that their problems get resolved with a quick phone call.
