Immigration Legislation Roundup


Less than a quarter of the way into 2011, there are roughly a dozen new bills in the U.S. House and Senate related to immigration. Here is a snapshot summary of six of those bills that have received some attention in the press:

1. The E-Verify Modernization Act (HR 693): This is a Republican-sponsored bill to make the E-Verify program permanent and mandatory. It would also provide, to some degree, a safe harbor for employers in terms of “due diligence” on employee work qualifications. A similar competing bill under a different title is HR 800.
