Immigrant workers may be subject to e-verification

Posted on Sunday, January 8th, 2017 at 6:52 pm    

Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick plans to make Senate Bill 23 into a law in the upcoming legislative session. The bill was filed by Texas State Senator Charles Schwertner and seeks to require state contractors to use a federal electronic verification system to ensure the immigrants they are hiring have legally immigrated to the United States.

If the bill gets approved, it will codify an executive order regarding e-verify issued by former Texas Governor Rick Perry in 2014. Ana Gonzalez, a member of the Workers Defense Project, said the measure seeks to negatively impact both undocumented workers and businesses because half the state’s construction industry workforce comes from immigrant workers.

They are always on top of documents that needs to be collected, due dates and also preparing you for anything extra non top of what is required. William and his team are very experienced in working with the local and federal USCIS office. I would highly recommend them.
