US to strengthen the current E-Verify system

  1. USCIS announces new measures to further help employers verify new hires eligibility to work. This will assist employers to maintain a legal workforce and to protect the jobs of authorized U.S. workers. All new hires, including US Citizens are checked through the system. These new measures will make it hard for illegals to find work and this further enhances the new law that makes employers liable for any illegal worker found working with them.

    Hmmm - do you think that may eventually help those of us trying to legally get to the US?

    Mind you I don't suppose there's many, if any, illegally working as nurses! If there was the sudden loss in workers might make them get schedule "A" up & running again

    You might be surprised but there are quite a few and some employers tolerate it (that's why they get away with it - both of them) and there are more coming or bound to be. These are usually from those coming in on tourist visas but went out of status or went through the immigration process but proven to have dual-intent and then denied adjustment of status and ordered to leave the US but never did. All they have to do is find an employer willing to accept them and when both the employer and employee have an understanding between them then it would be hard for a co-worker or colleague to prove otherwise. Any one can say I'm legal and no one will say the opposite when asked. It is for the system like this to know and even then some still get through using identity fraud.

    This is exactly why there are frequent raids on nursing homes in CA for this very reason. They catch many that are working there illegally, and they are being deported. ICE has raids all of the time and the people that are picked up are placed in immigration detention for a period before they are deported and this is essentially a jail, they are usually attached to the federal prisons, and since the person is here illegally, they are not treated as if they were citizens. They are given the bare minimums, not much different than being at the base in Cuba right now, and they are locked up in cells the same way as well.

    Deportation is for minimum of ten years, and not guaranteed that they will even be able to return. Even overstaying a tourist visa and if the person is stopped for whatevern reason, they have a straight pass to the detention center, and they not permit you to return home to get your things. What the person has with them is all that they will have.

    Hope that some read this and become aware of what will happen. We still see people posting here all of the time that they have been out of status for a long time and are still in the US.

    And would like to add that some are still continuously posting that they are currently in the US on a tourist visa and would like to know how to do it, even at these times when adjustment of status cannot be done.

    Some also just arrived in the US but haven't even started applying for licensure and a few do not go home even after their visa expires and would rather be out of status than return home and then go back because they know that there will always be the possibility that they can be denied entry at the pont of entry the next time they enter.
