Kansas Governor Laura Kelly vetoed an E-Verify bill that came to her desk on April 26, 2021.
Congress created E-Verify in the 1990s and it allows employers to electronically verify the work authorization of their would be employees. States have gradually adopted laws that mandate businesses to use E-Verify. This kind of legislation addresses one of the migrant magnets to the US — work opportunities — and makes it more difficult for businesses to hire illegal aliens under the table.
