ICE targetting five states

Back blogging after an absence...Five states, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, and Tennessee, are targeted by the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for a workforce inspection.

One hundred and eighty employers received notices that ICE plans to inspect hiring records to determine whether they are complying with employment eligibility verification laws and regulations. The inspections are part of ICE's increased focus on holding employers accountable for their hiring practices and efforts to ensure a legal workforce.
