Would Mandatory E-Verify Facilitate the Great Reset?

Since the inception of the E-Verify program nearly three decades ago, I have been a vehement supporter of mandatory E-Verify.

The Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986 prohibits employers from knowingly hiring illegal alien workers. E-Verify is an online system that allows an employer to quickly and easily check legal employment status of new hires, while the IMAGE certification program examines older hiring records in order to detect phony documents used by illegal alien workers.

Currently, E-Verify use is optional. If it were mandatory, it would go a long way toward uniformly preventing employers from violating immigration law. It would dissuade aliens from sneaking in to America for economic gain. Some states are working on making E-Verify mandatory - take Florida, for example.

So what is there to lose from mandatory E-Verify, other than the huge profits corporate America glean off unscrupulous job displacement of American workers?

Ryan McMaken takes issue with E-Verify in his 9 May 2023 Mises Institute article, The New Immigration Bill Is a Trojan Horse for E-Verify and Is a Threat to All Americans. He points out that:

The expansion of E-Verify would also go a long way in helping the federal government build essential infrastructure that in the future could be used to implement "social credit scores" or restrictions on employment for those who refuse federally mandated vaccines or other mandates....

Beginning in the days of the "War on Terror," conservatives and the GOP often promoted and approved new "antiterrorism" legislation creating vast federal spying and prosecutorial powers. Supporters often supposed such powers could only possibly be used against Islamic terrorists and other official enemies of the Bush Administration. A federal spying apparatus has since been erected and deployed against virtually all Americans...

Ron Paul wrote that:

E-Verify almost certainly will be used for purposes unrelated to immigration. One potential use of E-Verify is to limit the job prospects of anyone whose lifestyle displeases the government. This could include those accused of failing to pay their fair share in taxes, those who homeschool or do not vaccinate their children, or those who own firearms.

Unscrupulous government officials could use E-Verify against those who practice antiwar, anti-tax, anti-surveillance, and anti-Federal Reserve activism. Those who consider this unlikely should remember the long history of the IRS targeting the political enemies of those in power and the use of anti-terrorism laws to harass antiwar activists. They should also consider the current moves to outlaw certain types of “politically incorrect” speech, such as disputing the alleged “consensus” regarding climate change.

Certainly, potential for abuse of E-Verify exists. Leo Hohmann discussed this in his 11 May 2023 article, By fomenting border chaos and lawlessness, globalists have set trap that will deceive humanity into accepting biometric digital ID that will tag and track all people everywhere, writing:

What about the USA Patriot Act and the creation of the Department of Homeland Security after 9/11? People were begging for, demanding a measure of safety and they were eager to hand over their most basic rights and freedoms to the government in exchange for that promise of safety.,,

You see it also with education. Public schools have been utterly destroyed by decades of leftist infiltration... 

School choice. Who wouldn’t be in favor of “choice?” But he that taketh government funds placeth himself under government rules...

Just like Homeland Security, the Patriot Act, school choice and most gun laws, E-Verify will be turned against law-abiding Americans...

But what if I told you all of these problems related to IDs - problems at the border, in the workplace and in the voting booths - are with us, not by accident but by design. As a result, they can and will be solved by requiring a biometric digital ID for all people.

Conservatives, on the other hand, tend to be more independent, more likely to exercize critical thinking. Globalist elites know this. In order to get conservatives on board with changes that will advance the agenda of global governance and control, they must be made to feel the pain of societal problem in spades. Terrorist attacks, pandemics, wars and economic meltdowns make wonderful instruments of pain...

Thus it seems we have a Hobson's Choice. We can continue with the explicit Democrat agenda of open borders, which will with certainty destroy our nation.

Or we can implement national security measures such as a border wall, and enforcement measures such as E-Verify which could in worst case become an instrument of the globalist agenda.

The Libertarian perspective is that more government rules and regulations are inherently bad. Yet Article IV, Section IV of our Constitution mandates that the Federal government protect all of our states against invasion. If mandatory E-Verify can be used as a tool to enforce an existing provision of our constitution, it makes good sense to do so ... with full awareness of potential abuses.
