The immigration reform plan put forth by President Obama last month calls for increased penalties against employers for hiring undocumented workers. Plus, it would mandate employers’ participation in the electronic E-Verify system within five years. (Large employers with 1,000 or more workers would have to comply within two years.)

A group of Democratic and Repub­­li­­can senators are pushing their own bipartisan reform plan, which would create a mandatory electronic employment verification system that would differ from E-Verify.
