Immediately following her appearance on Talk of the Nation, Alicia Shepard will take your questions live.

She will talk about an NPR funding credit from the Department of Homeland Security, which offers E-Verify, a program that allows electronic verification of an employee's legal status. (Read her blog post on the subject.)

You can start leaving your questions, now, in the comments section below.

The chat starts shortly after 3 PM EST.
