Pia Orrenius | Effects of E-Verify on Unauthorized Immigrant Employment and Population

Tower Center Senior Fellow Pia Orrenius published a new study with the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, Digital Enforcement, onĀ the effects of the E-Verify system on the employment of immigrants. The E-Verify system requires employers in some states to electronically verify the immigration status of workers before they can be hired.

“E-Verify, when it’s mandatory and all employers have to use it, can have very large deterrent effects on the employment of undocumented immigrants and possibly also on the immigration of undocumented immigrants or illegal immigration,”Ā Orrenius said.
