    The Congressional Research Service recently issued a report reviewing performance measures of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). As you can see below, before FY 2008, when ICE introduced its Culture of Compliance - emphasizing inspections/audits of employers’ I-9 forms, ICE assessed few, if any, fines against employers.

    Final Orders and Civil Fines – FY 2006-2014


    Fiscal Year Final Orders Issued Civil Fines Imposed

    2006 0 $0
    2007 2 $26,560
    2008 18 $675,209
    2009 52 $1,033,291
    2010 237 $6,956,026
    2011 385 $10,463,988
    2012 495 $12,475,575
    2013 637 $15,808,365
    2014 642 $16,275,821

    To date in FY 2015, ICE is on pace to match the approximately $16 million in civil fines imposed in FY 2014.

    Criminal Fines and Forfeitures, Worksite Enforcement Investigations, FY2006-2014

    Fiscal Year Criminal Fines and Forfeitures Imposed

    2006 $233,044
    2007 $31,426,443
    2008 $21,978,918
    2009 $31,244,945
    2010 $36,611,320
    2011 $7,189,631
    2012 $14,205,865
    2013 $2,245,366
    2014 $35,131,058

    As you can see below, criminal indictments and convictions have varied over the past 10 years with the high point being FY 2008.

    Criminal Indictments and Convictions, Worksite Enforcement - FY 2006-2014

    Fiscal Year Indictments Convictions

    2006 411 340
    2007 750 561
    2008 900 908
    2009 292 287
    2010 309 282
    2011 347 364
    2012 318 292
    2013 296 319
    2014 327 312

    I expect the criminal indictments will be increasing in FY 2015 due to ICE’s renewed emphasis on seeking criminal indictments, fines, and forfeitures.
