The federal agency tasked with enforcing immigration laws inside the U.S. is on track to launch more than twice as many investigations this year into whether U.S. companies are hiring workers legally or if they’re taking on immigrants who don’t have work authorization.
ICE is the federal agency responsible for upholding the laws established by the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986, which requires employers to verify the identity and work eligibility of all individuals they hire. These laws help protect jobs for U.S. citizens and others who are lawfully employed, eliminate unfair competitive advantages for companies that hire an illegal workforce, and strengthen public safety and national security.
Any worker who is determined by an investigation to be working illegally in the U.S. will be arrested on administrative charges and go through removal proceedings.
