IRLI Files Supreme Court Brief Defending Arizona E-Verify Law Against the US Chamber of Commerce, the ACLU, and the United States Department of Justice
On October 28, 2010, IRLI filed a friend of the court brief with the United States Supreme Court, supporting the Arizona E-verify law. In 2006, with the help of IRLI, State Senator Russell Pearce drafted the Arizona Legal Workers Act, a first-of-its kind State law which required virtually all employers in Arizona to enroll in and utilize the federal E-verify system. E-verify is a federal database that allows employers to electronically verify whether a newly hired employee is authorized to work in the United States. Janet Napolitano, the Governor of Arizona at the time, signed the law in 2007.
