“Criticism intensified on Thursday when Chairman Smith introduced a new version [H.R. 2885] of the legislation that removed a key privacy safeguard. Previous versions had required that the database only be used for checking employment eligibility. But the new version allows the database to be used much more widely. The Department of Homeland Security could make it available to anyone who is responsible for “granting access to, protecting, securing, operating, administering, or regulating part of the critical infrastructure.”


Here is second life for news that matters:

E-Verify has “morphed into a monster”

California is moving to ban E-Verify

Immigration measure is a sneaky national ID

E-Verify: “De Facto national ID and the end of privacy”
