The Iowa farm that employed the illegal immigrant suspect accused of murdering Mollie Tibbetts claims the man successfully passed the E-Verify system; the nation’s premier program aimed at keeping undocumented workers out of the workforce.

According to Fox News, Cristhian Rivera reportedly passed the E-Verify background check after taking a job at Yarrabee Farms. If true, the revelation raises serious questions over the effectiveness of the program that scans I-9 forms and personal tax records.

“Dane Lang, one of the owners of Yarrabee Farms, said in a statement that all documents regarding Rivera’s employment have been turned over to authorities. Yarrabee Farms is owned by the family of Craig Lang, the former president of the Iowa Farm Bureau and a former GOP primary candidate to be Iowa’s Secretary of Agriculture,” writes Fox News.

“E-Verify has prevented a lot of illegal aliens from getting jobs. It’s the best system out there,” said former ICE acting director Thomas Homan. “I would be interested to know is: Did they really run this person in E-Verify? And what failed?”
