Nikki Haley Urges Mandatory Use Of E-Verify By Employers

 March 30, 2023

Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley is saying NO MORE when it comes to the unlawful hiring of illegal immigrants in America.

"Haley plans to enact a federal program requiring that employers use E-Verify to confirm workers' employment eligibility, which she sees as a means to combat the unlawful hiring of illegal immigrants," reported Breitbart.

"Haley, the former governor of South Carolina and the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations during the Trump administration, detailed her immigration and border security platform on the campaign trail in New Hampshire on Tuesday," reports Breitbart. "The candidate hosted back-to-back town hall events in Dover and Salem."

Haley spent time at both events highlighting her plans to mandate the E-Verify program on the federal level.

"E-Verify is a government-run tool that allows employers to verify the employment eligibility of their workers. As governor of South Carolina, Haley enacted statewide E-Verify requirements for business on all new hires. The 2011 law, which is still on the books, mandates that employers verify new workers’ employment eligibility within three days," reported Breitbart.

"What we did in South Carolina with E-Verify was you had to verify that that person was in this country legally or else you could not hire them," said Haley. "That’s what we put in place in South Carolina, and more importantly we enforced it. When you enforce it, one, that stops everybody from coming across the border. Two, it puts laws in place that matter. Americans need to get these jobs. We need Americans building things again. We need Americans working again. We don’t need to pay them to sit on the couch. We need to get them to work, but we have to have the jobs ready for them when we get them there."
