Follow-Up on Illegals at Courthouse Construction Site
WOKV News is following up on the illegals who were busted working at the Duval County courthouse project.
The city says Turner construction is doing a better job keeping illegal workers off the downtown construction site.
The Mayor's spokeswoman Misty Skipper says they check each employee who wants to work there.
"If they are a U.S. citizen they provide a driver's license. If they are a legalized worker working in the United States legally, they have to provide us documentation demonstrating that".
They also require contractors to go through a verification process for their crews.
"If there is a new contractor who is coming on site and bringing a group of employees they're required to go through a system called E-verify, which is through the federal government and allows the employer to pre-screen and pre-validate all of the employee information prior to arriving on site".
On top of that, Skipper says the contractor has people stationed at the entrances monitoring who is coming and going from the site.
She says she is not aware of any more arrests at the site.
