Little enforcement for E-Verify law in Arizona

PHOENIX (AP) — A new study has found that a number of Arizona employers are failing to check the status of new workers using a federal database.

The Arizona Capitol Times reports that about 58 percent of new employees statewide are run through the E-Verify system, according to a Cato Institute study.

The Washington, D.C.-based libertarian think-tank found there has been a lack of enforcement since Arizona approved a 2008 law making the check mandatory.

Cato Institute analysts say there are few consequences for business that fail to comply.

Mississippi, Alabama and South Carolina are the only other states that currently mandate E-Verify for employers.

Their rate of compliance is similar to Arizona's.

Sen. John Kavanagh, who co-sponsored the legislation, says the federal government needs to do a better job of enforcement.
