While I am in agreement that illegal immigration must be stopped, I am against the eVerify legislation for the following reasons:

1. Creates a de facto national I.D. System - even for citizens;

2. Violates individual civil liberties such as the right to work and free speech;

3. Mandates a costly job-killing regulatory burden that cripples small business;

4. Requires employers to become enforcement agents of the federal government;

5. Encourages identify theft of law-abiding citizens.

Benjamin Franklin said it best when he said, “Anyone who trades liberty for security deserves neither liberty nor security”.
