PLOT TWIST: AFL-CIO's struggle with E-Verify

c/o Dave Bacon at Truthout 
"Some Washington insiders accept as a fact of life that the sanctions law will continue, or even worse, that E-Verify will become a mandatory national program for all employers. But for unions and workers who have had to deal with its effects, it would be much better to immediately repeal it, and dismantle the E-Verify database. This in fact was the decision taken by the AFL-CIO at its convention in Los Angeles in 1999. Delegates at that convention believed we have to stop enforcing immigration law in the workplace, because its real effect is to make workers vulnerable to employers, and to make it harder for all workers to organize to improve conditions."
