Floridians Have Two Paths to Enact Mandatory E-Verify

PATH ONE: The Florida State Legislature Passes Mandatory E-Verify in 2017 - FAILED
Florida House and Senate Leadership failed to make protecting the jobs of legal workers a legislative priority. See why Path One failed...

PATH TWO:  The Florida Constitutional Revision Committee recommends our proposed E-Verify Amendment be put on the 2018 ballot and it passes.

Why Floridians Must Take Action Now to Implement Path Two

Florida House and Senate leadership has made it clear they will not stop illegal hiring in Florida

Floridians for Immigration 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.

Petition to the Florida Constitutional Revision Commission

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 $5.4 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.


SUMMARY OF PROPOSED E-VERIFY CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT:

Employers’ Mandate to Verify the Employment Eligibility of all New Employees.

Effective on July 1 of the year following passage of this amendment by the voters, all Florida employers who hold business licenses shall verify the employment eligibility of all new employees through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s E-Verify system. The Department of Business and Professional Regulation shall administer this amendment through regulations, random audits, investigations of complaints, and enforcement actions. Authorizes penalties for violations of this amendment. Provides definitions.
