Washington, D.C. — On Thursday, June 30th, conservative and libertarian leaders will host a press conference call on controversial immigration enforcement legislation the House Judiciary Committee is expected to consider next week.
The legislation, H.R. 2164, would mandate the use of the flawed electronic employment verification system known as E-Verify by every employer in the United States. In Thursday’s call, conservative and libertarian policy leaders will shed light on the regulatory burdens, privacy concerns and fiscal downsides of expanded electronic verification. Moreover, they’ll explain how H.R. 2164 runs counter to the principles of free market enterprise and limited government.
