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.
