Whereas, the E-Verify system is a federal Internet-based system that lets businesses check prospective employees to see if they are legally present and eligible to work in the United States.
Whereas, E-Verify is currently the best means available for employers to electronically verify the employment eligibility of their newly hired employees.
Whereas, knowingly hiring illegal aliens is against the law and robs Florida’s citizens and legal immigrants of job opportunities.
Whereas, providing education, medical care, and other public services to its illegal alien population costs Florida taxpayers $6.3 billion a year.
Whereas, E-Verify is business friendly, it’s fast, free and easy to use – and it’s the best way employers can make sure they are employing a legal workforce.
Therefore, I, the undersigned Florida taxpayer, call upon the members of Florida’s Constitutional Revision Commission to place this amendment on Florida’s 2018 ballot.
A new section in Article X of the State Constitution to prohibit unauthorized aliens from working in the state and to require the legislature, by a specified date, to establish an employment eligibility verification process.
Article X, Section 30. Employment Eligibility Verification.
a. An unauthorized alien may not work in this state contrary to federal immigration law.
b. By July 1,2020, the legislature shall, by general law:
1. Establish an employment eligibility verification process to ensure that all employees in the state are legally authorized to work under applicable federal immigration law. Employment verification must be completed in a manner consistent with federal law, including within the established timeframe following the hire date of each new employee.
2. Enact a statewide random auditing program administered by an executive department to ensure compliance with the employment eligibility verification process and prescribe penalties for failure to comply.
Floridians for Immigration Enforcement has worked for a decade now to have the Florida State Legislature address Florida’s Illegal Immigration crisis by enacting immigration enforcement legislation. To date Republican leadership has blocked over thirty immigration bills meant to protect Floridians from the negative effects of illegal immigration. The Legislature has passed pro illegal alien In-State Tuition and legislation to allow illegal aliens to practice law in Florida. Click here for the full story.
