Congressman Brian Bilbray's Statement on Supreme Court's Decision Upholding Arizona's E-Verify Law

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Brian Bilbray (CA-50), Chairman of the bi-partisan House Immigration Reform Caucus, released the following statement on the Supreme Court's decision granting state's the authority to require employers to use the federal E-Verify system and permitting them to revoke the business licenses of companies that knowingly hire illegal workers:

"Today's Supreme Court decision that upholds a state's right to revoke business licenses of companies that knowingly hire illegal workers is a giant leap in the right direction for meaningful immigration reform. Congress must take the next step and enact laws that end our implicit encouragement of illegal immigration and address its cause: employers who exploit illegal labor. Implementing the E-Verify system is something Democrats and Republicans must work closely together on to achieve. It is imperative that we end an employer's ability to hire an illegal worker and that we eliminate any notion of amnesty so that illegal immigrants are without two major incentives for breaking our laws." -- Congressman Brian Bilbray (CA-50), Chairman House Immigration Reform Caucus
