News From The Hill
Mixed news regarding immigration last week. While the Senate adopted amendments to the Department of Homeland Security funding bill that would expand the use of E-Verify and extend the border wall, the Obama Administration announced that it would rescind the ineffective No-Match rule requiring the Social Security Administration to notify employers that employee's social security numbers did not match. However, the Administration also announced that DHS would require E-Verify for all federal contractors and subcontractors. Finally, the Council on Foreign Relations adds its voice to the call for sweeping immigration reform.
