According to today’s North County Times editorial, the use of E-Verify by cities or local businesses is unnecessary and a “political” act unless it is mandated by the State or Feds.
Along those same lines then, do cities need to wait on the State and Feds for every other decision they make? This argument doesn’t hold water, especially when it is Federal Law for employers to verify that they are hiring folks that can legally work here. That is what the I-9 form has been used for. Now, E-Verify comes along and is free, fast and efficient and the NCT editorial thinks its use is “political”.
