The Republican-controlled House of Representatives just passed a bill reportedly designed to secure the border, but what they’re not telling you is that it also contains a national identification program called E-Verify that employers will be required to use before hiring anyone, even American citizens. Matt Kibbe and Thomas Massie talk about the dark implications of such a program, comparing it to China’s social credit system and vaccine passport program that was conceived during the COVID-19 lockdowns. Not only will E-Verify create the infrastructure needed for the government to keep constant tabs on its citizens, but we already know from existing programs how susceptible these systems are to mistakes, meaning that thousands of innocent, law-abiding Americans will be denied employment through clerical errors alone.
