More than 10,000 Americans signed a petition on the White House website urging Pres. Trump to sign an executive order mandating the use of E-Verify for all employers nationwide. The petition must garner another 90,000 signatures by mid-June before it can be presented to Pres. Trump to sign.
The petition reads:
"U.S. Citizens should not be responsible to pay for the lives of illegal aliens and the services they use, including but not limited to education and healthcare. Likewise, businesses must be held accountable for hiring legitimate workers. Today, less than 3% of businesses participate in E-Verify because it's voluntary.
"Congress has demonstrated a lack of will to stop illegal immigration. Therefore, the President must use the powers granted him to remove the incentive for illegal aliens to travel to and remain in the U.S. unlawfully by eliminating their ability to secure a JOB.
"Americans want the rule of law enforced NOW. This petition calls upon President Trump to immediately sign an executive order making E-Verify mandatory for all U.S. businesses, no exceptions."
