Arizona, The Show Me State?
eVerify Proven to Work

Lou Dobbs Tonight -- CNN -- July 21  

Lisa Sylvester, CNN: Arizona was first. Passing a law that requires all businesses check new hires to make sure they can legally work in the United States using what's known as the e-verify system. Business groups had predicted it would be a disaster and small companies would go under. But now, six and a half months after the law took effect, even the Arizona Chamber of Commerce says it's not so bad after all.
Ann Seiden, Arizona Chamber of Commerce: The sense here in Arizona is that for the most part, employers are experiencing fewer problems with e-verify than some had anticipated.
Sylvester: Now other states are eyeing Arizona as a model to weed out the illegal work force. Mississippi has a similar law that took effect this month. Colorado, Georgia, Minnesota, North Carolina and Oklahoma are among a handful of states requiring use of the e- verify system in some cases.
Randy Pullen, Arizona Republican Party Chairman: I think there's been a turn in the mind of the business community as well as I think it's been demonstrated that e-verify does work.
