Want to know which employers are enrolled in E-Verify?

Great news: This information is just a click away!

USCIS has just launched its new E-Verify Employers Search Tool, which allows you to find employers currently enrolled in E-Verify.

The new tool lets you filter, sort and export results found during your search. Information you can find in it includes:
  • The employer’s business name;
  • Whether the employer is a federal contractor; and
  • The city and state where the employer is located.
E-Verify is a Web-based service that helps employers determine whether their newly hired employees are authorized to work in the United States. The new search tool replaces the lists of employers and federal contractors previously found in our E-Verify website.
Among those who will benefit from the E-Verify Employers Search Tool are F-1 students in programs related to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) who plan to apply for a 17-month Optional Practical Training STEM Extension. These students may only work for employers enrolled in E-Verify.
USCIS will update the new search tool’s database each quarter.

You and your office are engaged in doing so much to help all categories of non-immigrants. Thank you.

It is business for the universities to take international students as these students pay for their education without any grant or loans from the United States government. Their presence in the country stimulate the economy as they pay for their stay and living expenses. Most of the time it is money brought into the United States rather than money going out. Why then are these students treated so humanely by the American Consulates outside the United States when they apply for visas for re-entry into the United States. Why is the authority of USCIS issues them change of status within the United States questioned once they leave the country? Whys should the USCIS documents be made invalid.

My husband is an international student. In fact, he is an adult student who has been persevering his academic dream of a college education. Growing poor he did not have the opportunity. He went back to school at age 45 after he earned some money to pay for his education. In our home country at that time adult educaton was unheard of. So he was happy to fulfill his dream in the United States.

Simultaneously, pursuing my husband's dream, we had a young daughter too to educate. We spent most of our savings and have been struggling but never gave up. Now my husband and daughter have a couple of years to go to fulfill their goals. As a dependent spouse I did not work. I looked after my family and supported them in their endeavors. Recently, I came to my home country to visit my dying mother. She passed away three weeks later. I was denied re-entry into the United States under INA 214(b). The Consul did not even ask a single question pertaining to ties to home country or even see any documents. On just his whim, he gave his decision. I have my own home and an investment property in my home country, my savings, my bank accounts whereas in the United States, my family and I have nothing - no property or assets. In America we have been living in a rental apartment. I have a sister who is a citizen and her son has joined the U.S. Navy but I have never asked her to sponsor me for a green card. She owns two food stores but we are not dependent on her or work for her. It may be viewed as foolish but yes, we have sacrificed a lot for this American education. Our goal has been to pursue our dream on merit and self-achievement. We have obeyed every law as applicable to international students. Yet, today I have been separated from my family. I feel I have been wronged by the American Consulate. Why? I had every legitimate document to prove my authenticity.

Sir, you have to protect the F1 students and their families from this continuous pain and trauma. Please do something and have a foolproof system in place so that the genuine students can be easily identified.

Thank you

I totally agree and feel your pain. This denial to innocent people has got stop. It only seems that they want to collect money instead of supporting talented people who can be helpful for this company.

If people would indeed just go to real universities, things would likely be easier.
But there are unfortunately a lot of fraudulent applications, e.g., people applying for student visas for fake "universities", like TVU, Herguan, UNVA, etc. etc.
As always, these frauds result in problems for legitimate applicants as well. That's why it is important for everybody to spread the word to your fellow countrymen and -women to avoid doing anything fraudulent.
