Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says people in Virginia and the District, Arizona, Idaho and Colorado can use the E-Verify self-check system to ask the government to correct any information that may be wrong in the Department of Homeland Security or Social Security Administration files.

Napolitano said the self-check program is expected to expand to all other states in 12 months.
