A recent survey along with a report issued by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) affirm the E-Verify system is a key tool in ensuring a legal workforce in the U.S. The report by the GAO also revealed improvements in the system such as establishing better safeguards for personal information and reducing the mismatch rates.
E-Verify also received 82 out of 100 on the American Customer Satisfaction Index scale for a customer survey that evaluated key aspects of the program. Customer Support was one area that respondents overwhelming approved of, with a score of 89 which was based on the many improvements made by the Obama administration. The survey additionally revealed that users were likely to recommend the program to other employers, were secure in the program’s precision, and were likely to continue with the program. Although the E-Verify program under the Obama administration is showing continued success, the passage of comprehensive immigration legislation is crucial to fix the current immigration system.
Over 243, 000 employers are currently using the E-Verify program and approximately 1,000 new employers enroll every week. For more information about the E-Verify program visit www.uscis.gov/everify.
