Sen. Grassley Introduces E-Verify Bill

Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) introduced the “Accountability Through Electronic Verification Act,” S. 1032, on April 21, 2015. Among other things, the bill would permanently authorize E-Verify, make employer E-Verify use mandatory, allow employers to use E-Verify before a person is hired, require employers to check the status of all current employees within three years, and require employers to re-verify an employee’s immigration status if his or her work authorization is due to expire.

Similar legislation (H.R. 1147) is pending in the House of Representatives. 

Details of the Senate bill will be posted at as they become available. Sen. Grassley’s statement explaining the bill is available at
