Submission + - Congress trying for another database

grag writes: CNET reports that the US Congress, in their quest for immigration reform, seek to force employers to utilize a database to determine a person's eligibility for employment.

The article also mentions similarities between the no-fly list and difficulties the proposed database could pose to valid people seeking employment.
