Employers Around the Country Report a New Round of ICE I-9 Audits

"The calls from clients who received visits from Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents started to trickle in last Thursday afternoon. Although nothing has been announced, we have reason to believe that ICE is conducting a new round of audits. While numbers have not been confirmed, we estimate that at least 500 employers nationwide will be receiving Notices of Inspection (NOIs).  We understand that the NOIs were issued based on robust “tips and leads” and many of the inspections could lead to criminal indictments." - Dawn Lurie, Nov. 6, 2011.
