FEATURED STORY: CEI Hosts Lively Hill Briefing on E-Verify


Last week, CEI hosted a Capitol Hill briefing on E-Verify, the electronic employment verification system that may soon become mandatory for American businesses if some Congressmen have their way. After an engaging panel discussion, legislative staffers in the audience sparked a long debate on the merits of E-Verify which eventually led one panelist to call the briefing the best he'd ever been a part of. Watch the highlights of the briefing here. The full video of the event is here.
