In fact, the employment rate for low-skilled working-age men authorized to work in Arizona was estimated to have fallen from about 70% to 66% between 20, according to the researchers' analysis of the U. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Current Population Survey.

Arizona, long considered ground zero in the fight against undocumented immigration, was the first state to mandate that all employers use E-Verify beginning in 2008.

Several other states have started requiring the use of the verification system in some manner since then, including Alabama, Mississippi and South Carolina.

While the number of undocumented workers fell dramatically in the years following the mandate, the number of opportunities that were made available for legal residents didn't materialize at nearly the same rate, said researchers Magnus Lofstrom and Sarah Bohn, who conducted the study for the San Francisco-based think tank.

Lofstrum and Bohn examined E-Verify's impact on Arizona's workforce between 20 and found that the state's undocumented population declined by about 92,000 people, or about 17%, as workers left the state to look for jobs.
