On July 1, 2009, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced that it had issued Notices of Inspection (NOIs) to 652 businesses across the country as part of a “bold, new audit initiative.” ICE targeted these businesses for inspection as a result of information it had obtained “through other investigative means,” and did not disclose the names or locations of the businesses.
