Washington (AP) President Bush has signed an executive order requiring contractors and others who do business with the Federal government to make sure their employees are working in the country legally.
Bush signed the order Friday and the White House announced the order today.
The order says Federal departments and agencies must require contractors to use an electronic system to verify that the workers are eligible to work in the U.S.
The order comes as a Worker Verification bill has stalled in Congress.
