Enzi Talks Immigration

U.S. Senator, Mike Enzi, offered some comment on the possiblity of a “Path to Citizenship” for undocumented immigrants during his weeky web address to his Wyoming consituents. He said the issue of immigration is one that people in Wyoming have kept a close eye on, because some of the state's industry relies heavily on imported labor.

Enzi said he's looking forward to see how immigraiton reform looks when it comes out of the Senate Judiciary Committee. He said he has a couple of sticking points that he feels are vital to fix the problem of undocumented workers.

E-Verify is a federal database available to employers that enables them to check social security numbers and determine someone's eligibility to work in the United States.

Multiple calls to the Department of Workforce Services suggest the state does not keep statistics regarding undocumented workers.
