From Employer Sanctions to E-Verify

The long and winding road toward protecting American workers

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) has just introduced universal — in other words, mandatory for all employers — E-Verify legislation (S. 4529).

It is worth taking this opportunity to explore the history of and rationale for employer sanctions, culminating with E-Verify.

‘Humanitarian’ Flights from Safe Countries & Vacation Spots

The departure country list casts serious doubt on whether the Biden administration has used the humanitarian rescue flights program as it was sold to the American public. In fact, the new departure country information shows that many migrants from these four nationalities have been heading to the U.S. from some of the safest, most prosperous nations on Earth.

Op-ed: Biden’s U-Turn On Deporting Illegal Immigrants Will Last Only Until Election Day

The Biden administration knows a deportation airlift will serve the self-interest of winning reelection on Nov. 5 if done at scale.

No one should expect the Biden administration, should it win the election, to sustain the Mexico or Darien Gap crackdowns beyond Nov. 5. But there’s a silver lining for border hawks here. If Trump wins, he can build mightily on the preparations that Biden’s campaign managers are beginning now.

Fact Check: Reuters Is Wrong — Biden Is Not Deporting More Illegal Aliens than Trump

Conflating “returns” and “removals” is a trick that Obama pulled too

The Biden administration has dramatically decreased deportations and protected criminal aliens, as should be obvious to anyone in the media reporting on immigration matters. Media that reports anything to the contrary only further harms the credibility of journalism.

Democrats aside, the electorate can see the costs and threats and are fed up with the political games

As national news outlets pored over polls conducted after the June 27 debate between President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump, one immigration-heavy poll — conducted by the Harris Poll and Harris X for the Center for American Political Studies at Harvard University — has been largely ignored.
