Contractors Must Check Workers' Status

President Bush has signed an executive order requiring contractors and others who do business with the federal government to make sure their employees can legally work in the United States.
The order says federal departments and agencies must require contractors to use an electronic system to verify workers' eligibility.
The order is aimed at cracking down on hiring illegal immigrants. But people who overstayed visas or came to the country legally but do not have permission to work, such as some students or those awaiting work permits, also could be caught by the system.
The action comes as a worker verification bill has stalled in Congress.
