    US government shutdown may be making life easier for illegal immigrants

    From the BBC:
    E-verify down

    Operated by the Department of Homeland Security, the E-verify programme allows employers to confirm that potential hires are able to work legally in the US.

    It has been offline since 22 December, which could make it easier for illegal immigrants to get jobs if employers bypass verification.
    Ironically, the action aimed at preventing illegal immigrants getting into the country is those already there to get jobs.

    I hope so - looks like my edit went awry.
