WHITE HOUSE EMPLOYER COMPLIANCE CAMPAIGN GOES INTO OVERDRIVE

Rate this Entry

Immigration and Customs Enforcement Assistant Secretary John Morton announced today that the agency will inspect the I-9 records of approximately 1000 companies around the US, dwarfing the announcement in July that nearly 600 firms were being investigated. Only 500 firms were audited in 2008. This time the employers being targeted are firms involved with "critical infrastructure" projects.

ICE also released some interesting data showing the impact of its new enforcement initiatives:

Statistics since implementation of new ICE worksite enforcement strategy on April 30:

  • 45 businesses and 47 individuals debarred;


    • 0 businesses and 1 individual were debarred during same period in FY 2008.



  • 142 Notices of Intent to Fine (NIF) totaling $15,865,181;


    • ICE issued 32 NIFs totaling $2,355,330 in all of FY 2008.



  • 45 Final Orders totaling $798,179;


    • ICE issued eight Final Orders totaling $196,523 during the same period in FY 2008.



  • 1,897 cases initiated;


    • ICE initiated 605 cases during the same period in FY 2008.



  • 1,069 Form I-9 Inspections;


    • ICE initiated 503 Form I-9 Inspections in all of FY 2008.




In July, ICE issued 654 NOIs to businesses nationwide in the largest
operation of its kind before today - part of ICE's effort to audit
businesses suspected of using illegal labor.

Statistics resulting from the 654 audits announced in July:

  • ICE agents reviewed more than 85,000 Form I-9s and identified more
    than 14,000 suspect documents - approximately 16 percent of the total
    number reviewed.

  • To date, 61 NIFs have been issued, resulting in $2,310,255 in
    fines. In addition, 267 cases are currently being considered for
    Notices of Intent to Fine (NIFs).

  • ICE closed 326 cases after businesses were found to be in
    compliance with employment laws or after businesses were served with a
    Warning Notice in expectation of future compliance.
