Indian Gaming, 7699-7700 [E9-3501]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 32 / Thursday, February 19, 2009 / Notices (INS) published a notice in the Federal Register describing pilot programs that are required by section 403 of IIRIRA. On December 20, 2004, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced the extension and expansion of one of these programs, the Basic Pilot, which was renamed the E-Verify Program in 2007. The E-Verify Program permits participating employers to electronically verify the employment authorization of newly hired employees against Social Security Administration and, in some cases, Department of Homeland Security, databases. sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Program Evaluations Section 405 of IIRIRA required that evaluation reports on the verification pilot programs be completed and sent to Congress. Those evaluation reports were submitted to Congress in 2001 and 2002. Since that time the former INS and now USCIS have continued to evaluate and report on the electronic employment verification program to ensure that it is meeting the E-Verify Program’s goals of reducing unauthorized employment, reducing verification-related discrimination, protecting employee privacy and confidentiality, and minimizing employer burden. USCIS is currently evaluating the impact of expanded participation in the E-Verify Program under Arizona law. This meeting is being held as part of the evaluation to help the evaluators identify strengths and weaknesses of the E-Verify Program’s implementation under Arizona law from multiple perspectives, obtain insights into the issues and impacts that might arise with implementation of E-Verify in a mandatory use environment, suggest how those issues might be addressed, and prioritize future research topics. USCIS understands that expanded EVerify Program participation in Arizona relates to the enactment of certain requirements of Arizona State law; the purpose of the evaluation and this stakeholder meeting are to better understand effects on the E-Verify Program from the Federal perspective, rather than to analyze, construe or take a position as to the scope or merits of any particular provision of Arizona law. Summary of Agenda • Introductions. • Update on the E-Verify Program. • Overview of the fiscal year (FY) 2008 evaluation. • Evaluation goals for FY 2009. • Breakout group meetings to address topics such as addressing identity fraud, understanding and resolving tentative nonconfirmations, identifying program strengths and recommending program VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:38 Feb 18, 2009 Jkt 217001 improvements focusing on specific types of employers (e.g., designated agents, employers using designated agents, employment and temporary help agencies, small employers, multi-site employers, and companies with large concentrations of immigrant workers). • Discussion of output from individual breakout groups. • Questions and comments.
