E-Verify Efforts In States Are Even More Critical As Pew Study Reveals 8 Million Illegal Aliens Still Hold U.S. Jobs

by Chris Chmielenski, NumbersUSA: All federal and state enforcement efforts against illegal immigration the last year failed to reduce the number of illegal aliens holding U.S. jobs and keeping unemployed Americans from having them, according to a Pew Hispanic Center study released this week.

In the few states that have seriously implemented their own mandatory E-Verify laws, the number of illegal aliens has declined. But the annual count of illegal aliens by Pew indicated that the illegal foreign workers are mainly moving to lax-enforcement states and taking jobs there. Thus, the number of jobs held nationally by illegal aliens remained steady at 8 million.

The answer, of course, is to make E-Verify mandatory nationally (through Congress) or greatly increase the number of states doing so. But time is running out in several states as their short legislature session head to a close for the year.

Yesterday, a Kentucky House committee approved a mandatory E-Verify bill, but there's still a lot of work to be done in the Bluegrass State and many other states across the country.
