One reason given for President Barack Obama’s re-election was the strong support he received from Hispanics voters. Support for immigration reform, especially for creating a pathway for legalization, was seen as a major difference between the two Presidential candidates. Now, both parties are embracing reform. A bi-partisan group of senators (the “gang of eight”) has put together an immigration reform framework that includes a pathway to legalization, border security, improvements to the current immigration system and mandatory E-Verify. President Obama has released a similar plan. Comprehensive immigration reform will impact employers because it may reveal employees that are undocumented and will almost certainly require employers to use E-Verify. It is also likely that enforcement of current laws, including audits of employers to ensure compliance with current laws, will increase.
