Ron Paul: E-Verify Threatens Us All

Ron Paul’s latest column is Jack Ryan bait:

“In addition to funding for a border wall and other border security measures, immigration hardliners are sure to push to include mandatory E-Verify in any immigration legislation considered by Congress. E-Verify is a (currently) voluntary program where businesses check job applicants’ Social Security numbers and other Information — potentially including “biometric” identifiers like fingerprints — against information stored in a federal database to determine if the job applicants are legally in the United States.

Imagine how much time would be diverted from serving consumers and growing the economy if every US business had to comply with E-Verify. Also, collecting the relevant information and operating the mandatory E-Verify system will prove costly to taxpayers.

Millions of Americans could be denied jobs because E-Verify mistakenly identifies them as illegal immigrants. These Americans would be forced to go through a costly and time-consuming process to force the government to correct its mistake. It is doubtful employers could afford to keep jobs open while potential hires went through this process. …”

I’m so glad we were done with this stuff. There isn’t really anything more to say about it.

  1. Meanwhile in the real world of right now millions of Americans have been put out of work because of cheap labor from immigrants. But libertarians are concerned about hypothetical costs to government and business of putting E-Verify in place.


    We already have a national ID system like e-verify for all. It is called SSN. They check your SSN everytime you rent, you open a bank account, etc anyway. Or hired, as that is necessary to withhold taxes on wages.

    With additional data specifying if you are here legally or not, any business can verify, with hardly any additional cost to the business.

    Ron Paul–stop lying.

    • This is exactly right on. Businesses already check your status by issuing a W-2 tax statement. If your SSN is fake, it already takes up time and effort to correct the record. Citizens can go to any Federal building and show proof of Citizenship via Passport or Birth Certificate. People already do this in cases of Identity Theft, which illegals have turned from a rare phenomenon to a National Plague.

      Socialists know this is the jugular to illegal immigration. Making it impossible to hire illegals breaks the cash flow from the USA to Mexico and stops the desire for illegals to even come into the Country. It is not a magic bullet, but it changes the equation completely. In addition, punishing fines to businesses who hire illegals and prevention of adding illegals to the welfare rolls would stop 99% of illegals.

      E-Verify, deport, build the wall!

  3. We’ve already got SSNs and driver’s licenses which serve as de facto national IDs, so this E-Verify business is redundant. If it is implemented it will be for the purpose of tracking the movements/activities of White American “citizens” ( cattle), not for the purposes of verifying anyone’s immigration status.

  4. I call libertarians liber-tardians. Their nutty notions on economy do not account for in-group behaviors. For example, in tard land, Jews would never act as a in-group, to then take rents on society. You know, because magickal free markets are God.

    In point of fact, there is no such thing as a free market, there are three kinds of markets: Elastic, Inelastic, and mixed. Only elastic markets have price competition. Rent seekers try to grab natural monopolies (usually inelastic markets) to then take rents forever for their in-group. Fabricating money via banks (credit creation) is a natural monopoly, where our ((friends)) take their usury. Natural monopolies belong to the commons, and hence must be government owned or government regulated. Oh the horrors!

    E Verify is a sensible action to find and eject social pathogens. Importing turd worlders is to take wage arbitrage is a favorite tactic of corporate “business.” Capital is not neutral, it always wants to be above labor. So, tardian’s in their free dumb zeal are actually foot soldiers for Oligarchy, in effect ushering in loss of freedom. The very thing libertarians want, they can’t have because their “theology” has internal contradictions.

    • Libertardianism only appeals to a small number of eccentric, nerdy White males, many of whom have slope girlfriends.

    • Nothing wrong with libertarianism in of itself in some ways. I’m for limited government and people doing more for themselves as a community. But race, culture, and IQ matter.

      We already defacto national ID’s with the driver’s license.

      You do have to give Ron Paul credit for pointing out the flawed Supreme Court ruling allowing someone born here to become a citizen. That really needs to change.

  5. I used to support Ron Paul before I understood the flaws in libertarianism. Thank you OD for wising me up.

  6. Love to see this old guy Ron Paul try to give a speech in my old Chicago neighborhood for,Sr home of Milton Friedman. Love to see Ron Paul get lost and go West instead of East and have to ask directions from folks in Ingelwood. Love to see him try to free makrket talk his way out of being raped and murdered ha ha.

  7. Licensing good ol boys to capture them and auction them off as slaves for a lifetime of hard labor would be the most cost effective system possible. It would:
    1) cost zero dollars in tax money
    2) create lucrative jobs for white men, allowing them to open up their own small businesses as slave hunters. (No doubt a lot of these men who had previously been dismissed as losers would immediately become irresistibly sexy to women.)
    3) cause the talented tenth of the immigrants with such “deep roots” in this country to make a new door on their way out
    4) get all our crops picked on time and cheaper than ever
    5) increase our manufacturing sector
    6) provide a large, ready test population for a booming medical research industry

    Immigration problem solved.
    New jobs created.
    Fledgeling ethnostate on fast track to become global superpower.
