Gov Shutdown Means Employers Can't Check If Workers Are In U.S. Legally

The fight in Washington over funding a US-Mexico border wall to combat illegal immigration has had an ironic knock-on effect.

According to Business Insider, the ongoing government shutdown has also halted one of the government's main programs used to vet immigrant workers.

E-Verify is meant to check whether the candidates employers want to hire are in the country legally.

But a note on the program's website says the service is "currently unavailable." Border Patrol agents are also working without pay, and immigration judges report experiencing massive disruption to the asylum cases they were set to hear.

In some cases, the lack of staffing is causing the cases to be canceled and rescheduled years in the future.
