Small Business Opinion Mixed on E-Verify
"Mitt Romney promises less regulation on small businesses, but the immigration plan he supports would add an extra step to the hiring process. Romney has said the nation should follow immigration rules like those in Arizona, where companies are forced to use a federal government program called E-Verify. Business owners are required to check the legal status of all new workers against Social Security and immigration records," says CNN.
"When asked about bringing the Arizona model nationwide, the Romney campaign did not respond to requests for comment.
But the Republican candidate could find support from those businesses that have tried E-Verify and find the burden minimal compared to the increased confidence that employees are who they say they are. That's the case for management at eegee's, a Tucson-area restaurant."
