Bill Would Extend E-Verify for 5 Years

With E-Verify set to expire in November, some lawmakers feel there is insufficient time to do anything other than pass a 5-year extension. “We’ve got six weeks left in this session, and we’re just not going to get that done,” said Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Cal.). She and Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) are moving a bill for a 5-year extension through the House of Representatives. It is unclear whether the Senate will agree. Any reform of the verification process will have to wait until the next administration.
