ICE Form I-9 Compliance Investigations in the Trump Era

Employer liability for Form I-9 violations can range from $220.00 – $2,191.00 per Form I-9 with violations.

Last month, the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”), which is charged with enforcing I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification compliance, raided nearly one hundred (100) 7-Eleven stores across the country, including stores in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. ICE served inspection notices, interviewed employees and management, and made twenty-one (21) arrests. These raids followed acting director Thomas Homan’s recent directive to ICE agents to increase worksite investigations by “four to five times.” To put this in perspective, in 2017, there were 1,360 worksite investigations by ICE, which resulted in businesses being ordered to pay $97.6 million in judicial forfeiture, fines and restitution, and $7.8 million in civil fines. A four to five factor increase from 2017 will disrupt thousands of additional businesses. There is no sign that this trend will slow any time soon.
