Recently the handling of civil immigration detainers by local law departments has been heavily scrutinized.
AILA Doc No. 08080168 | Dated July 31, 2008
The bill includes a provision intended to ensure the Department of Homeland Security provides timely reimbursements to the Social Security Administration for use of that agency's resources. Additionally, the bill authorizes the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to conduct two studies of the E-Verify system. One will examine the causes and effects of errors in the program, and the second will study the experiences that small businesses, nonprofit organizations and municipalities have using the program.
The bill will now head to the Senate for consideration.
