The U.S. Government's Employment Verification Website Is Down !!

The E-Verify website is closed because of the Federal government shutdown.  

Employers in the U.S. are forced to use this system when hiring, mostly to ensure that people are "legal". 

Why does it matter so much where someone's Mom was located when her water broke? The older I get, the more I see this vile website as an instrument of racism. Or am I mistaken in not believing that the lines of latitude and longitude beneath a uterus should define a person for life?  

(And check out these politically correct contortions from the site: "This diverse workforce contributes greatly to the vibrancy and strength of our economy, but that same strength also attracts unauthorized employment.") 

Any bureaucratic drone who is proud of stopping "unauthorized employment" should be laid off permanently. And then sent to Iraq or Afghanistan, to live out the rest of his life as an "unauthorized" non-person in one of the countries that his co-workers have screwed up. 

End of rant.

Libertarians have two opposing viewpoints on immigration (plus some other viewpoints).

One group supports open borders and unlimited immigration even while we are heavily taxed to support a nanny state. New immigrants would be just as eligible for "safety net" government support as citizens. (I do not believe members of this group have considered the costs of open immigration.)

I belong to the group that believes we should not invite people who are opposed to our basic beliefs. The USA has too few libertarians. Inviting in tens of millions of immigrants who are not libertarians will reduce what little political clout we have.
