Paul Ryan and the Cloud-People Pubbies are not fans of E-Verify, no matter what they SAY on the topic. E-Verify has the potential to shut off the Cheap Labor Choo-Choo for restaurants and construction contractors who happen to be large-dollar donors.

But don't assume that it's all good now and that E-Verify will be the law of the land. There's plenty of money out there that prefers the Cheap Labor Choo-Choo AND lawless hiring.
Keep your eyes open.
