E-Verify (formerly known as
the Basic Pilot/Employment Eligibility Verification Program) is an
Internet-based system operated by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in
partnership with the Social Security Administration (SSA) that allows
participating employers to electronically verify the employment eligibility of
their newly hired employees. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)
administers the program. E-Verify is free and voluntary and is the best
means available for determining employment eligibility of new hires and the
validity of their Social Security Numbers.
US Citizenship and
Program enables Federal, state, and local government agencies and
licensing bureaus to obtain immigration status information they need
in order to determine a non-citizen applicant's eligibility for many
public benefits. The Program also administers employment
verification pilot programs that enable employers to quickly and
easily verify the work authorization of their newly hired employees.
Facts About the Social Security “No-Match” Letter
employers file a Wage and Tax Statement (Form W-2) with the Social
Security Administration (SSA) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)
to report how much they paid their employees and how much they
deducted in taxes from employees’ wages throughout the year. SSA
sends a “no-match” letter when the names or Social Security numbers
(SSNs) listed on an employer’s Form W-2 do not match SSA’s records.

Cartels use children to breach U.S. border
Drug cartel members are
using a variety of fronts and subterfuges - from fake tamale stands to child
decoys - to gather intelligence about enhanced U.S. border security and exploit
weaknesses to send in people and drugs, according to a new report obtained by
The Washington Times. The findings, by the U.S. Army's Asymmetric Warfare Group,
underline the growing threat to U.S. security from a porous border. Mexican drug
cartels continue to probe for gaps in border defenses while fighting one another
and Mexican authorities in a violent conflict that has killed more than 7,000
people in Mexico since the beginning of 2008. U.S. authorities also worry that
terrorist groups could exploit vulnerabilities in border security.

From May 14-17, the global

powerful individuals came together to discuss the pressing issues of today, and
to chart a course for the next year. The main topic of discussion at this years
meeting was the global financial crisis, which is no surprise, considering the
list of conference attendees includes many of the primary architects of the
crisis, as well as those poised to “solve” it.

Obama Set to Create A Cybersecurity Czar With Broad Mandate
President Obama is expected
to announce late this week that he will create a "cyber czar," a senior White
House official who will have broad authority to develop strategy to protect the
nation's government-run and private computer networks, according to people who
have been briefed on the plan. The adviser will have the most comprehensive
mandate granted to such an official to date and will probably be a member of the
National Security Council but will report to the national security adviser as
well as the senior White House economic adviser, said the sources, who spoke on
the condition of anonymity because the deliberations are not final.
Should Obama Control the Internet?
The Cybersecurity Act of 2009
(PDF) gives the president the ability to "declare a cybersecurity emergency" and
shut down or limit Internet traffic in any "critical" information network "in
the interest of national security." The bill does not define a critical
information network or a cybersecurity emergency. That definition would be left
to the president.

Millionaires Go Missing
Here's a two-minute drill in soak-the-rich economics:
Maryland couldn't balance
its budget last year, so the state tried to close the shortfall by fleecing the
wealthy. Politicians in Annapolis created a millionaire tax bracket, raising the
top marginal income-tax rate to 6.25%. And because cities such as Baltimore and
Bethesda also impose income taxes, the state-local tax rate can go as high as
9.45%. Governor Martin O'Malley, a dedicated class warrior, declared that these
richest 0.3% of filers were "willing and able to pay their fair share." The
Baltimore Sun predicted the rich would "grin and bear it."
