Title: States Crack Down on Employers

Category: Journalistic

What is it? Series of images from the New York Times
Publication Information: July 6, 2008
Location: http://www.nytimes.com/imagepages/2008/07/06/us/06employerGR.ready.html
Accessed: 2/28/09

Support:
ImmigrationWorks USA

ImmigrationWorks USA provides information to the New York Times for their images.  ImmigrationWorks USA is a pro-immigration organization who support immigration reform by educating the public about the benefits of immigration.

Audience and Agenda:
The New York Times is the largest metropolitan newspaper in the U.S.   It was founded in 1861, and it has won more Pulitzer Prizes than any other newspaper according to Wikipedia.  According to Quantcast.com, the New York Times websites receives 13.3 million visits a month.

Usefulness:  These images are useful to my research because they show the states who have imposed tough employer laws.  It also lists the states who enforce the use of E-Verify.  The Department of Homeland Security should monitor these states to see the effects of the laws and how well they are working.  If the results are promising, then Congress should push for further implementation of the laws in other states.
