E-Verify Adoption Gaining Steam – HSToday

The E-Verify program has gained steady adoption momentum among the nation’s employers, US Citizenship and Immigration Services Associate Director Theresa C. Bertucci told the House Committee on the Judiciary, Subcommittee on Immigration Policy and Enforcement last Thursday in a hearing titled “E-Verify: Preserving Jobs for American Workers”.

“As of today, more than 246,000 employers are enrolled, representing more than 850,000 locations,” Bertucci declared.  “More than 1,300 new employers enroll each week and the number of employers enrolled in E-Verify has more than doubled each fiscal year since 2007.” The volume of queries per fiscal year has also increased dramatically, from 3.27 million in FY 2007 to 16.4 million in FY 2010, Bertucci added.
