Biden Administration's Attempt to Loosen Document Verification Would Clear the Path for Fraud and Unlawful Employment, Charges FAIR

Alert date: 
October 17, 2022
Alert body: 

(October 17, 2022, Washington, D.C.) — Today the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) submitted a public comment in response to a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) that seeks to significantly alter the physical document examination requirements associated with employment eligibility verification (Form I-9).

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) instituted temporary flexibilities and waived the physical examination of employment and identification documentation for employers facing a sudden and near-total shift to a remote workforce. The Biden administration now seeks the authority, on a discretionary basis, to cement those flexibilities when certain conditions are met. 

 

"Any action taken under the authority provided by this rule, if finalized, will be viewed as an attempt to ease the requirements of employment verification. While a welcome change for employers contending with large-scale remote workforces, it will be abused by bad actors who will hide behind a far easier good faith compliance defense," wrote Dan Stein, president of FAIR. "With the unprecedented numbers of illegal alien apprehensions and encounters along the southern border and the ever-growing crisis that we are presently witnessing, the demand for work is high, and any attempt to diminish verification will be routinely used by smugglers, traffickers, and unscrupulous employers. Any authority used to weaken document verification requirements will erode the intend of the underlying statute aimed at ensuring that only lawful aliens are eligible to work in the United States." . . .

DC advances Alien Voting Bill

The Washington DC city council took the first of two votes to give voting rights in local elections to foreign nationals, including illegal aliens.The Constitution dictates that the District of Columbia because it is the seat of government be under Congress’ authority.  Article 1 of the Constitution authorizes Congress to exert total legislative authority over Washington, DC. Over time, Congress has ceded its authority over to local control. However, under the Home Rule Act, Congress did retain the ability to block DC bills by passing a joint resolution that is approved by the president within 30 days of the DC mayor adopting them.                                                                                                                                                                                             When Congress passed the DC Home Rule Act in 1973, it specified that only American citizens in DC could vote in elections for federal office.  However, Congress did not specifically limit voting to American citizens when it came to DC’s local offices.  Read more about DC advances Alien Voting Bill

Texas’s Democrat Enclaves Bridle at the Migrant Surge in Their Midst

It’s not swanky, cranky Martha’s Vineyard, but Democrat leaders in El Paso are also chafing over migrants in their midst. Border crossings are nothing new for El Pasoans, yet the current unprecedented volumes are overwhelming. The city expects to spend $10 million this month alone feeding, housing and transporting migrants —10 times those outlays over the past four years. With costs running $300,000 a day, officials have cut public safety budgets while wondering if or when relief will come from their party patrons in Washington, D.C. “I don’t think anybody’s expecting it to get any better anytime soon,” grumbles Robert Cortinas, chief financial officer for the city government.

The Great Replacement

No one was surprised that Leftists from President Biden down to the governor of New York demanded the eradication of “Hate Speech” after the terrible mass shooting in Buffalo, New York. The rhetoric urging censorship is bad enough. But mandating policies that actually attack free speech is even worse . . . Read more about The Great Replacement
