Congressman Paul Ryan, R-WI, 1st District, joins two other congressmen Thursday introducing legislation to address illegal immigration with a new employee verification law.
Ryan will take part in a news conference on Thursday, Feb. 28 at 11 a.m. with two other members of the House Ways and Means Social Security Subcommittee, Sam Johnson and Kevin Brady of Texas.
The New Employee Verification Act, Ryan says, will ensure a legal workforce, secure workers’ identity, and protect Social Security. The bill strengthens enforcement through tougher employer penalties, replacing the current error-prone and cumbersome I-9 process with an electronic verification system.
Susan R. Meisinger, President and CEO of the Society for Human Resource Management, and Lynn Shotwell, Executive Director of the American Council on International Personnel, will speak at the news conference in support of the measure as well.
