Businesses that use the Basic Pilot Program

Now you can see which employers try to verify immigration status of their new hires by using the Basic Pilot Program made available by the federal government.

Now you can see how many do not.

Thanks to NumbersUSA for this information.

[Note, State Senator Chip Rogers obtained and used a list of Georgia based companies that take advantage of the free access to the Basic Pilot Program earlier this year during the process of getting THE GEORGIA SECURITY AND IMMIGRATION COMPLIANCE ACT [ SB 529] passed in the Georgia Capitol. Using Basic Pilot is a key part of his legislation.]

Here is the link to a list of companies that make it clear that they intend to try to obey existing law.
What a concept.

This from NumbersUSA:

BUSINESS OWNERS: If your company is not listed here, you will want to take steps to get on the list as soon as possible to avoid the public’s disapproval.

CONSUMERS: Supporting businesses that hire legal workers is one of the most effective things one can do to encourage these businesses to continue to be leaders in their communities and to persuade other businesses to begin using the Basic Pilot program.

When you patronize any business, make a point of telling the clerks, managers, waiters, hosts and other personnel that you either approve of their being part of the verification program or that you are disappointed that they aren’t – and perhaps that you are considering discontinuing your relationship with them if you don’t see their name show up on this list.

The more businesses that join this program, the more illegal aliens who will voluntarily go back to their home countries. More than 200,000 long-time settled illegal aliens in this country already leave the U.S. each year because the tiny bit of enforcement now in place makes their lives too uncomfortable. Imagine how many more will leave as fewer and fewer businesses are available to hire them.

NumbersUSA works hard to make a free fax service to Congress available to us, I hope that you will use it.
I do.
