USCIS and Mississippi Implement New E-Verify Tool to Combat Fraud </br>Fact Sheet
Improves Accuracy and Integrity of E-Verify by Validating Driver's License
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) today launched Records and Information from DMVs for E-Verify (RIDE), a new feature which allows USCIS’s E-Verify program to validate the authenticity of Mississippi driver’s licenses used by employees as Form I-9 identity documents.
More than 80 percent of employees present driver’s licenses to establish their identities when completing the Form I-9. By enabling E-Verify to compare driver’s license data against state records, RIDE will improve E-Verify’s accuracy and help combat document fraud when determining employees’ eligibility to work in the United States—while observing safeguards to protect employee’s personal data. Mississippi is the first state to partner with USCIS to implement RIDE.
