DHS doubles amount of businesses it ‘scoured’ over hiring illegal aliens

DHS is targeting businesses that hire illegal aliens.

Washington Times:

Homeland Security has already more than doubled the number of businesses it has scoured this year for breaking immigration hiring laws and nearly quadrupled the number of arrests it has made, officials said Monday.

The surge comes months after U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement chief Thomas D. Homan ordered the renewed focus, looking to put pressure on the magnet that draws many immigrants who cross illegally into the U.S.

A little more than seven months into fiscal 2018, ICE reported 3,510 worksite investigations, 2,282 paperwork audits, 594 criminal arrests and 610 administrative arrests stemming from worksite enforcement.

Each is already a significant increase over 2017’s yearlong totals.
