Please support the SB518 Verification of Employment Eligibility Act

Florida and our nation are at a critical juncture and your support is desperately needed. 

Because our federal government has failed to enforce immigration laws for decades, it is time for Florida to step up to protect Florida’s jobs, students, minorities, businesses, hospitals, cities, counties and citizens from the continued degradation by the current estimated 725,000 illegal alien population and by the endless inflow of those who disrespect our laws and borders.

The SB518 Verification of Employment Eligibility Act is an effective, moderate and common sense solution to address the root cause of illegal immigration – THE JOB MAGNET.  The bill mandates that all employers in Florida use E-Verify to verify the legal status of new hires.  While Governor Scott’s Executive Order to mandate that all new state employees as well as new hires for state contractors be verified, SB518 expands the scope to include all businesses operating within the state.  

The SB518 Verification of Employment Eligibility Act was previously referred to as the Florida Citizens Employment Protection Act and is posted at:

S518 GENERAL BILL by Hays

Verification of Employment Eligibility; Requires every employer to use the Employment Authorization Program to verify the employment eligibility of each employee on or after a specified date. Prohibits an employer from employing an unauthorized alien. Requires every public employer to register with and participate in the E-Verify system for specified purposes. Provides guidelines for interpretation of the provisions of the act, etc. EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2011

Through the pro-enforcement principal of  ‘Attrition by Enforcement’ when jobs are not available they will self-deport to their home country or flee to another state.  The tremendous benefit of E-Verify is that it will apply over time not only to the existing unlawful population but will serve as a preventative measure and deterrent to future unlawful entrants.  E-Verify is non-discriminatory as all new hires must be verified.

While E-Verify is highly accurate, the system can be circumvented by fraudulent documents.  As Florida ranks 6th in the nation for identity theft,  FLIMEN is calling upon the state to launch an aggressive and visible campaign against identity theft under existing Florida statute.

Even though many elected officials campaigned for immigration enforcement that does not mean, no surprise here, that they will keep their promise.  FLIMEN has knowledge of numerous ‘red flags’ that they will ‘push-back’ on immigration enforcement during the upcoming Legislative Session.  The Florida Legislature has blocked 29 immigration enforcement bills over the last three years so we must not let the SB518 Verification of Employment Eligibility Act become number 30!

 You both have pledged to make creating jobs for Floridians your number one priority. Without mandatory E-Verify for all employers there is no assurance that any job you create will go to the legal workers of Florida. Unemployed Floridians should not have to compete with illegal aliens for jobs. Please make enactment of the SB518 Verification of Employment Eligibility Act a top priority and put Floridians back to work, not illegal aliens!

 Sincerely, Your Name
