Today, President Donald Trump, through the Office of Management and Budget, released their proposed 2019 budget for the fiscal year 2019 which begins October 1st.

E-Verify Mandatory Nationwide

The proposal explains that $23 million will be invested to expand the E-Verify program for mandatory nationwide use. The $23 million is on top of the $208 million being requested for 300 additional ICE Special Agents, support staff and the infrastructure needed to carry out Homeland Security’s mission to ensure that only those with a legal right to work in the United States are employed. Per the proposal, the budget also has language to receive reimbursement of the $208 million from the application fees of those requesting immigration legally into the United States.

Information on the proposed nationwide use of mandatory E-Verify is still coming out of Washington. To keep up to date, follow our blog, email at or call 800.518.3874.
