E-Verify and No-Match Update: The Obama Administration Speaks


On July 8, 2009, U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano announced the Obama administration's support for the E-Verify federal contractor provision, while pledging to rescind the controversial Social Security No-Match regulation. However, the U.S. Senate quickly responded, passing a measure on July 9 designed to block DHS's rescission of the No-Match rule. In other E-Verify news, the U.S. Senate voted 55–43 to provide permanent funding for the program in the DHS FY 2010 Appropriations Bill,1 and four more states—Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina and Utah—mandated E-Verify usage for certain state employers on July 1, 2009.
