On Tuesday, November 28th the Florida Constitution Revision Commission will hold a hearing on proposed state constitutional amendments, including one that would require employers to use E-Verify to check the workplace eligibility of new hires proposals. You can see the amendment at the Floridians for E-Verify website.
The group Floridians for E-Verify Now is seeking people to attend the hearing and, if possible, testify in support of their E-Verify amendment. If you cannot attend but want to help, please see instructions further below for emailing commission members.
Regarding testimony, the group is seeking, in particular:
- Business owners or their staff who use E-Verify;
- American workers adversely affected by illegal workers; and
- Farmers who use the H-2A visa program as an alternative to hiring illegal aliens.
If you want to testify, or can attend but do not wish to testify, please contact Jack Oliver at jack@floridiansforeverifynow.
