    E-Verify Law Takes Effect in Murrieta CA.

    E-Verify Law Takes Effect in Murrieta

    The Department of Homeland Security's E-Verify system is used to check the legal work status of new hires.

    By Maggie Avants 6:00am

    A new law quietly went into effect almost 30 days ago in Murrieta.

    As part of obtaining or renewing a business license in Murrieta, employers must now sign a form stating they will use the Department of Homeland Security's E-Verify system to check the legal work status of new hires.

    City Council passed the ordinance mandating its use back in December, but the law wasn't scheduled to take effect until 90 days later--or March 19.

    "We haven't had any questions or complaints," said Brian Ambrose, senior management analyst for the City of Murrieta.

    When business owners come in to City Hall to renew or obtain a business license, Ambrose said the license form now has an extra check box they are required to fill in, indicating they will use the system.

    "So it is as simple and user-friendly as possible," Ambrose said.

    He said the cost of implementing the law has been minimal. The City spent a few thousand on computer software and revised forms.

    He said the City will use complaint-driven enforcement. The City employs five full-time code enforcement officers, and this will be added to their duties. If the City receives a complaint that a business owner is not using E-Verify, code enforcement officers will be sent to investigate.

    In addition to supplying an I-9, new hires will need to be run through the E-Verify system, a document-checking computer database administered by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, a division of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

    Mariana Gitomer, a USCIS spokeswoman, said the program is free to employers and can be found on the USCIS website.

    “Our purpose is to provide a tool for employers. We are not mandating it, but if a city wants to mandate it, that's up to the city,â€

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    The problem with this in our City is that the 5 Code enforcement people are so busy with all the BK & Forclosed homes and regular violations that the 3 who are full time are not going to be able to handel the extra cases. Murrieta needs to have citizens partake in some of this code enforcement and let the real guys do the work that requires a sworn officier.

    Code enforcement knows me by first name here, I report 5-10 homes every week for regular violations like STILL having the dam Christmas lights up, not mowing lawns, trash cans in view......

    Any and all comments & Opinions and postings by me are considered of my own opinion, and not of any ORG that I belong to! PERIOD!
