New INS crackdown
by Claire Closmann
On September 1, the Department
of Immigration and Naturalization
began enforcing the Immigration
Reform and Control Act of 1986.
The new law, intended to curb ille-
gal immigration, requires employ-
ees and employers to fill out an
Immigration and Naturalization
Service form, the 1-9, to prove that
the employee is a U.S. citizen or a
legal resident in the U.S.
Employees must prove identity
and authorization to work within
three days of being hired or by the
end of the first shift of their job.
Anyone hired between November
7, 1986, and May 31 of this year
must have filled out the 1-9 before
September 1, 1987. An employee
can prove citizenship with a num-
ber of documents including a U.S.
passport, a valid foreign passport
with employment authorization or
a state-issued driver's license along
with a Social Security card.
Immigration or Department of
Labor officers can inspect 1-9
forms without a subpoena or a
search wan-ant, as long as they give
at least three days' notice. Employ-
ers are required to keep the forms
for three years or a year after the end
of employment, whichever is
longer. During the first year of
implementation, the Immigration
and Naturalization Service will
issue only a citation for first vio-
lations, but further violations will
result in the penalty of a fine.
Included in the new law arc
domestic employees who work in a
private home on a regular basis, as
well as anyone else who performs
labor or services in return for wages
or other pay.
Employees who were hired before
the law was signed but have re-
cently have taken an approved
leave of absence are not required to
fill out an 1-9.
"I'm pretty apathetic about it.
It'sjust another form to fill out, but
for a lot of students it's a hassle be-
cause most of them do not keep the
necessary documents with them in
college," said Dennis Abbott, a pub
When you apply for that job to earn
money for the weekends, you will be
asked to show evidence that you are
eligible to work.
Proof includes a United States pass-
port, certificate of United States citi-
zenship, certificate of naturalization,
unexpired foreign passport with at-
tached employment authorization, or
alien registration card.
Also acceptable are one item each
from these two groups: 1) a state-
issued driver's license or I.D. card or
U.S. military card and 2) an original
Social Security Card, birth certifi-
cate certified by a government
authority or INS employment au-

The signs "Men" and "Women" on bathroom doors are one of the clearest signs of the division of the sexes. At Brown,
the bathrooms have been a topic of hot debate since plans for co-ed conversion were begun. Perhaps the women just
don't want to have to remind men to please put the seat down. —G. Stafford
Co-ed conversion takes over
Brown sundeck but not baths
IN THE COLLEGES
by Shelley Fuld
Students at the Brown
College Cabinet meeting decided
to reserve the bathrooms on the
even-numbered floors for women,
while men will use the bathrooms

Bathrooms aren't the only prac-
tical issue that has arisen from the
co-ed conversion. The sun-roof,
long known for attracting helicop-
ters who hovered around the women
sunbathing, will become co-ed.
