E-Verify mandate bill adds biometric worker ID

• Chris Calabrese
 Despite a significant error rate, pleas from multiple sectors of American business, and the heightened risk of identity theft, Congressman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) is dead-set on pushing legislation that would make the flawed E-Verify system mandatory for every U.S. worker and today he introduced H.R. 2164, the Lawful Workforce Act, which would do just that.

If you’re a taxpayer, you’ll be paying your share to make up for the approximately $17 billion in lost tax revenue caused when employers move to hire people off the books (that number is courtsey of the Congressional Budget Office). If you’re worried about privacy, you’ll love the pilot program to create a biometric national ID.
