Latest Developments in Employment Verification Enforcement


The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has announced that it will begin to investigate workplaces in all 50 states to identify employers who are hiring undocumented workers. Specifically on July 1, 2009, ICE launched a comprehensive audit initiative and issued Notices of Inspection (NOIs) to 652 businesses nationwide. ICE did not issue that many NOIs in all of 2008 ICE reported that the 652 businesses that were presented with a NOI on July 1 for a Form I-9 audit were apparently selected as a result of leads and information obtained through other investigative means. The names and locations of the businesses have not yet been released.

ICE's actions are directly in line with President Barack Obama's pledge to fight illegal immigration by going after employers who hire undocumented workers.

States are also apparently beginning to enforce their state immigration compliance provisions, among them Colorado.
