    E-Verify Use Projected to Grow 442% 2007-2009

    E-Verify Use Projected to Grow 442% 2007-2009
    By Janice Kephart, March 8, 2009

    U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) data from the first seven weeks of 2009 suggest that by the end of this year, E-Verify use will have grown 442 percent since 2007.

    Employers send queries to the free, online E-Verify system to determine the work-eligibility of new hires. As of the third week in February, online queries for 2009 were already approaching 3 million, almost half the 6.6 million queries for all of 2008, a number that was itself more than double the 2007 use of E-Verify.

    The projected growth in the number of queries for 2009, based on usage so far this year, is 167 percent over the 2008 figure, and the rate of growth is actually likely to accelerate, resulting in an even larger final tally. This projected growth of 167 percent for 2009 is a significant increase from the 103 percent growth in E-Verify usage in 2008.

    Those numbers translate to E-Verify being used in 2008 to verify one in eight (about 13 percent) of new hires nationwide. That was up from one in 18 new hires being queried via E-Verify in 2007, or 6 percent of new hires.

    In January 2009, the Department of Homeland Security announced that 100,890 employers at more than 400,000 worksites had signed up with E-Verify since its inception. By mid-February, DHS numbers show over 10,000 more employers on board — 111,759 at 439,956 worksites. Arizona led the total number of sites using E-Verify with 48,985 – Arizona’s law requiring use of E-Verify by all private and public employers has been upheld by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. California has the next largest number of E-Verify employers, with 47,500 sites. The top ten states using E-Verify are as follows:

    According to DHS, more than three million queries have been run through the system since Oct. 1, 2008; of those, more than 96.1 percent are automatically verified as employment authorized. In my September 2008 Backgrounder, "If It's Fixed, Don't Break It: Moving Forward with E-Verify," I concluded that E-Verify enables compliance with federal law cheaply, efficiently, and accurately; helps ensure that only legal workers are hired for American jobs; and has proven itself to be 99.5 percent accurate, with “nonconfirmations
