Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

Critics contend the program has significant weaknesses, including a reliance on government databases that have unacceptably high error rates. Employers also misuse the program to take adverse actions against workers, according to the National Immigration Law Center, an organization that protects the rights of low-income immigrants and families.
"With the economy the way it is, people can't afford to be out of work because of an error in a government database," said Tyler Moran, the center's employment policy director.
Others say the program needs to be carefully reviewed and fixed before it becomes mandatory. Expanding it on a large scale should be done in the context of comprehensive immigration reform, said Michele Waslin, senior policy analyst at the Immigration Policy Center, a pro-immigrant research institution.
"This is not a magic bullet that's going to solve the problem," Waslin said. "It's going to end up hurting U.S. workers in the meantime."
