Arkansas Republicans Sens. Tom Cotton and John Boozman both publicly supported nationwide, mandatory implementation of E-Verify in interviews released Friday.

Speaking to the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, both senators argued that the system would do a great deal to discourage illegal immigration by punishing those who employ illegal immigrants.

The article goes on to state the following:

“If we had a nationwide mandatory E-Verify [system], the word would get out pretty quickly to those countries whose citizens right now are streaming across our border,” Cotton said. “If they learn in their home countries that every job they pursue, there’s going to be an effective and immediate electronic verification system, they’ll be less likely to cheat the system and come here in the first place; more likely to do the right thing and … seek to come here either on a visa or to get a green card.”

E-Verify is, according to its website, “a web-based system that allows enrolled employers to confirm the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.” Specifically, the system allows employers to quickly match a would-be employee’s I-9 form against citizenship and work eligibility data from the Social Security Administration and Department of Homeland Security.

EXCLUSIVE NOTE FROM DML NEWS: After the interview with the Arkansas Democrat Gazette was published, Cotton announced in a Twitter post Friday, “Looking forward to working with my colleagues to introduce legislation that will make e-verify mandatory for all employers.”
