E-Verify being considered in Santa Maria

The Santa Maria City Council will soon be discussing the possibility of mandating the use of E-Verify. It's a federal program designed to help employers determine whether prospective employees are legally entitled to work in the United States.

We talked with Santa Maria City Council member Alice Patino on Monday about that system. She said the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps also have a request for the council. Patino said, "They are asking that it be mandated that anyone who applies for a business license in Santa Maria be mandated to use E-Verify."

At least one California city has already mandated the use of E-Verify. Beginning January 1st, it will be used in the city of Lancaster.
