The anti-enforcement crowd couldn't stop E-Verify, the online program that enables employers to verify the legal status of new hires, and it's actually starting to work, as I explain in the current issue of National Review. So the fallback position seems to be to try to get it reauthorized by Congress for only three years, rather than permanently, so they'll have another chance to kill it when the public is no longer paying attention (or after President ObaMcCain has passed an amnesty). Roy Beck has the details.
