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

Petition the Florida Constitutional Revision Commission to put our E-Verify Amendment on the ballot in 2018.

 

E-Verify 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 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.

PROPOSED AMENDMENT

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.
