E-Verify is in the news…
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has launched a Spanish-language myE-Verify to give Spanish speaking employees and job seekers access to identity theft protection features for the E-Verify process. A Spanish-language version of this announcement is at here.
Now then − although we have been supporters of E-Verify for as long as we can remember − about 2005 we are well anointed that Democrats fought this program for years and subsequently caused gridlock in congress.
We are very, very supportive that someone found their way inasmuch as this is the system that employers use in order to determine whether or not a person is able to work in our nation. However, since USCIS have been adding features, some that disgust us, insofar as we feel that assimiliation is still of main Reform consideration.
“Since its inception, myE-Verify has provided employees with valuable online tools and resources regarding the employment eligibility verification process,” USCIS Director León Rodríguez stated in news release about the announcement (Spanish-language version).
“We are delighted to release our myE-Verify services for our Spanish-language customers.”.
The USCIS – the government agency overseeing lawful immigration to the United States – also announced the addition of Case Tracker and Case History services to the English and Spanish myE-Verify websites. The new Spanish-language myE-Verify will have the following services that are currently available on the English-language myE-Verify launched in 2014:
• myE-Verify accounts – Employees and job seekers in the U.S. can set up free and secure personal accounts to manage the use of their information in E-Verify and Self Check.
• Self Lock – myE-Verify account holders can lock their Social Security numbers in E-Verify to prevent others from using their identities in E-Verify.
• Self Check – Individuals can confirm their own employment eligibility by checking databases that E-Verify queries.
• Resource Center – This section of the myE-Verify site contains information in multimedia formats to educate employees about their rights and the responsibilities of employers in the eligibility verification process.
myE-Verify is also introducing two new services and these new features are available nationwide in both English and Spanish:
• Case History – myE-Verify account holders can generate a report to see when their data was used in E-Verify.
• Case Tracker – Individuals can track the status of their E-Verify case using the case verification number. While Case History does require users to create an account, Case Tracker does not.
The USCIS is inviting the public to participate in a virtual forum on Thursday, September 10, 2015, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time, to discuss myE-Verify’s new features and current resources that assist workers in protecting their identities and understanding their rights.
