A new element has been added to the tragic story of the murder of Iowan Mollie Tibbetts, allegedly by an illegal alien from Mexico: the employment status of her alleged killer apparently had a stolen ID.
Which brings us to the need for mandatory E-Verify. Stories vary and are contradictory, but it is possible that Mollie’s murderer used the stolen ID and Social Security number of an American citizen to fool E-Verify, the web-based system “that allows enrolled employers to confirm the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.” In this case, the stolen identity got him approved for employment.
It’s good to add this to the discussion, because we need E-Verify to be mandatory and run on every new hire, as well as current employees, in every business in the country. We need to shut off the employment magnet that attracts the majority of illegal aliens to our country.
In addition to businesses, we could have government welfare offices, at the state and county level throughout the country use E-Verify on their applicants to insure that the taxpayers are not in any way subsidizing legal or illegal immigrants. The numbers on that are huge.
What would be the effect of the country Registrar of Voters using E-Verify to be sure that those registered to vote are actually qualified by law to vote?
And law enforcement could use E-Verify on every arrest, and know immediately if they have a citizen or non-citizen in custody.
The more E-Verify gets used, the more it will be improved, flaws found and corrected, and our immigration laws, and many other laws, will be better enforced.
Think of the deterrent message of mandatory and widespread use of E-Verify will send to the world:
“Don’t risk spending your money, wasting your time, or risking your life trying to illegally enter America, because you’re not gonna make it. And if you do, there is no job for you in any case.”
And the fewer that come, the fewer Mollie Tibbetts and Kate Steinles, et al. we’ll have in the future. That is the goal of our emphasis on the murder of Americans by illegal aliens … prevention.
You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life. [Winston Churchill.]
