A 5-11 Campaign Action Alert
The House Judiciary Committee will be hearing the Legal Workforce Act Thursday morning - a bill to mandate E-Verify and to integrate federal employment data systems with State drivers license records. It may create a permission based system to work in the United States for Americans. It comes from the same people who brought you the Real ID Act - sponsored in part by Rep. Lamar Smith and Rep. James Sensenbrenner.
If continued, E-Verify may create employment barriers for some citizens. There are also outstanding privacy concerns over SSN#'s administered in a web based application.
You can take action by contacting the House Judiciary Committee to ask them to vote NO on The Legal Workforce Act --before it becomes the next national identity mandate. Use your constituent power by calling key Committee members from your State.
NOTE: Hearing information may change so keep refreshing the calendar section.
