Now the ball is squarely in the court of the new Democratic House leadership--will they press for comprehensive immigration reform? For a detailed survey of the impact of the immigration issue on various races in this election, see here.

I-9 Forms and IRCA Compliance
Gregory Siskind, Esq. writes "This article will focus on the employment verification requirements under Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 ("IRCA").

Employers are required under that law to verify the identity and work authorization status of every employee of the business."
