If you follow my websites then you understand how passionate I am about e-Verify being made mandatory on a national level.  e-Verify is the government operated web-based system designed to help businesses determine who is, and who is not legally permitted to work in the U.S.

The problem is the system is voluntary.  Meaning, businesses don’t have to use it.  If they did, then many of the illegal aliens who use stolen IDs and fake Social Security cards would be prohibited from working.  I want e-Verify to be mandatory, and I want stiff penalties for any business that fails to comply with the labor laws. Repeat offenders must go to jail.

In his 2015 book, ‘Crippled America: How to Make America Great Again,’ Trump stated the importance of mandatory e-Verify to curb illegal immigration and to protect American workers.   He then stumped in 2015 and 2016 no less than twice per week in most months. Never did he fail to mention at his rallies his vow to make e-Verify mandatory if elected.

I was thrilled with his promise because at the end of the day cutting off the jobs magnet is the best way to stop illegal immigration and to rid of the illegal workers who are here today.

Remember this fact: Nearly 50% of the illegal aliens in this country are visa overstays. This means they DID NOT CROSS THE BORDER. Instead, they came in legally and never went home when the visa expired. A wall, a fence, a barrier of any size will not stop the visa violator. Furthermore, a wall will not cause a mass exodus of those here now. Although I support a wall being built, without cutting off the jobs magnet the wall is like having a car with no tires.

Keep in mind, the US government uses e-Verify when hiring.  Contractors who want to work for the government cannot do so without using e-verify — in other words the program is MANDATORY for the government but not for American businesses.

With this in mind, it is terribly disappointing for me to tell the DML News audience of an article that appeared today on

The Politico website has four reporters who are assigned to cover the immigration issue, and so they post new information on a daily basis as it becomes available.

Take a look at what they posted today about Trump wanting to cut funds to e-Verify:

“TRUMP WANTS TO CUT E-VERIFY: President Trump’s budget proposes an 8 percent funding cut to the E-Verify program — even though the administration is usually bent on boosting spending on anything to curb illegal immigration.

The White House requested roughly $122 million in discretionary funds for the electronic program in fiscal year 2020, down from the $133 million that Congress spent in the spending package approved in February, H.J. Res. 31 (116). ($133 million was what the Trump administration requested for fiscal year 2019, and also for fiscal year 2018.) Here at Morning Shift, we wondered briefly whether we were seeing things. But a USCIS spokesman assured us that the 8 percent cut was real.”

With the above being true, does it come as any surprise that President Trump met with seven business CEO’s and DC lobbyists last week to discuss immigration. Sitting next to Trump at the meeting was the head of the US Chamber of Commerce, which is the largest lobbyist in the country. They spend more money lobbying than any other group. What do they lobby for most? Cheap labor. Even Lou Dobbs of Fox News slammed Trump for his call for more immigration and more cheap labor.

    DML you won’t derail me from voting for President Trump in 2020. Everify or no everify I will never vote for a Democrat or any Republican running against President Trump.

    I watched a video by Josh Bernstein today that indicated the left’s new agenda is to eliminate the electoral college vote and strictly go by popular vote. Well, they have done it! Thirteen liberal states have now voted against using the electoral college process and in 2020, the popular vote will be how they count votes! Two additional states (Delaware and New Mexico) are soon to vote in favor of the popular vote as well. Combine this with allowing illegals the right to vote, as with the state of California, and the Republican/conservatives do not stand a chance. If we do not demand e-verify, along with spreading this word, President Trump is sure to lose.

    An 8% reduction although not good does not upset me too much. We can’t get everything, a man alone can’t fix every problem. A budget given can only stretch so far. Think you can do a better job? I have faith he is doing the best while the whole damn country on his back.

    How come we could not get enough signatures on the petition in support of eVerify? When liberal causes show up on the White House petitions, they usually get way more than they need.
    If that is a way to get the Presidents attention, then we MUST show him how we feel about it. Getting angry over an article and then going on with your life is NOT going to accomplish much.

    Let’s see, money for wall, less money for Everify. OK, got it. Cheap labor continues to control immigration policy.
