US employers of the five more states including Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, South California and Tennessee have been allowed by United States immigration authorities to use E-Verify system to scrutinize foreign workers before hiring.
With this ruling, the number of the E-Verify using states has increased to 17.
Under the electronic verification system, the Human Resource departments of the US companies will be able to judge the legal validity of the overseas job seekers’ visas before hiring them. It will help prevent illegal immigrants from getting jobs.
This law has been enforced following an overwhelming increase in the ratio of unlawful foreigners on the American soil. Despite the US government’s strict visa regime, a number of aliens manage to make inroads to the country with fake work permits issued by their local agents.
Such type of immigrants not only pose a serious threat to the States’ national security but also prove to be acids for their employers who recruit them.
In order to prevent this mayhem, the E-Verify system has been brought into force. The states, who are already using this technology, have achieved positive outcomes. They have also booked a number of illegal immigrants through this system.
The US lawmakers are keen to clear the country from illegal immigrants at every cost and allow only skilled and legitimate workers to stay on their territory so that they prove to be assets for the economy.
Being the largest economy of the world, America is an ideal destination for workforce of the Asian and African regions. Along with these two parts of the world, a number of workers migrate from the European states to the US as well.
The E-Verify has been strongly hailed by the American industrialists, deeming it to be a positive and beneficial development which is destined to produce valuable results.
It is expected that the other developed countries will also adopt similar kind of procedures to ensure the entry of only legal immigrants to their workforce spheres.
