H.R. 5111, the Illegal Immigration Enforcement and Social Security Protection Act, would increase interior enforcement by requiring a mandatory workplace verification program to verify the legal work status of potential employees. Additionally, the legislation contained significant sanctions against employers who hire illegal aliens and requires integration of the border-patrol fingerprint identification system and the FBI fingerprint-database. It would also reduce the ability of illegal aliens to use fraudulent Social Security cards to collect Social Security benefits by requiring Social Security cards that contain a photo ID and an electronic verification strip. and increase border control by providing $50 million to hire new Border Patrol agents and requiring integration of the border-patrol fingerprint identification system and the FBI fingerprint-database.
