Napolitano Supports E-Verify

From Numbers USA:
DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano

Napolitano Supports Longer E-Verify Extension

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said today that she supports E-Verify and an extension beyond its current Sept. 30 expiration date. In an interview with the Gannett Washington Bureau, she extended her support for the program even though the Obama Administration hasn't taken a position on it.

"It’s all about who gets to work and making sure they’re legally present in our country. And to do that nationally E-verify becomes a key component," Napolitano said in the interview. "It certainly needs to be available, effective and as inexpensive as possible and that employer needs to use it as a tool."

As governor of Arizona, Napolitano signed a bill making it mandatory for all employers in the state to use E-Verify. NumbersUSA has a map detailing all the state laws requiring some form of mandatory E-Verify usage.

"Some of the arguments that are made about how it works or does not work don’t carry much water with me. I’ve already used it for several years. It works."

Last month's Omnibus Bill extended E-Verify beyond its March expiration date. An amendment from Sen. Jeff Sessions to extend E-Verify for five years was tabled during a floor vote.


  1. If we make illegal immigration a criminal felony, instead of in most cases a slap-on-the-wrist civil---NOTHING. Then just may be illegal aliens will think twice about violating Americas sovereignty. Our nation has become a sponge for every misfit around the world, who slip past our undermanned borders. Out politicians have secretly underfunded the fence, so than instead of the original two-tier barrier, with a fast two lane track in between for border patrol vehicles. The majority of our lawmakers have no intentions of keeping the border sealed. Same as the controversial E-Verify, that once an illegal alien is hired-- they can be fired, if they are identified as such.

    Yet legislator conspirators who are in collusion with parasite businesses, secretly tabled the motion for refunding E-Verify.But the missed the fact with great anger, that it's still alive until September. Sen.Harry Reid, Sen Dianne Feinstein and Speaker Pelos can be identified as pro-illegal immigration politicians in Washington, along with 47 others of their traitorous party. With E-verify floundering, 300.000 plus illegal aliens could access construction jobs, arriving with with the Stimulus/Omnibus spending bills. If these lawmakers were interested in assisting the American worker, why would Homeland security chief suppress ICE raids? Read their awful immigration grades at NUMBERSUSA.

  2. Janet Napolitano, needs to really push the E-verify it must be mandatory for all American employers, she must help force work place raids, workplace raids helps to find illegal immigrants in our employment with false documents,it also help American citizens to be employed in their own country America! If they are caught and are in the process of being deported, they are responsible for their families, and the should take their families with them, stop them from getting away with the excuses of being so separated from their families when they are caught in a workplace raids, this is their fault!!

    Janet Napolitano should also help stop illegal immigrants for constantly using our American birthright laws just for the sake of getting granted American citizenship to their children, stop allowing them to have millions and millions of the children born here granted citizenship, on their illegal statuses, just close our American birthright laws to them before it is to late, this is also helping them to become the over populated race in America. Janet must listen to the American citizens!!
