Despite a variety of challenges, progress in adoption and deployment of E-Verify by American businesses has been significant over the past two years, witnesses told a Subcommittee on Government Management, Organization and Procurement at a hearing titled “E-Verify: Challenges and Opportunities,” held late last week.

In testimony Gerri Ratliff, Deputy Associate Director of the National Security and Records Verification of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) cited statistics from a new USCIS study showing that E-Verify is now being used to determine work authorization for 1 in 4 new hires.
