Homeland Security and ICE Announce Record Immigration Enforcement Statistics

Topics: Immigration, Legal Information

This week, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director John Morton announced record-breaking immigration enforcement statistics achieved under the Obama administration—including unprecedented numbers of convicted criminal alien removals and overall alien removals in fiscal year 2010.

Not only have DHS and ICE removed more convicted criminal aliens than ever before,they alsoannounced that they have issued more financial sanctions on employers who knowingly and repeatedly violate immigration law than in history.

Employers should be aware that since January 2009, ICE has audited more than 3,200 employers suspected of hiring illegal labor, debarred 225 companies and individuals, and imposed approximately $50 million in financial sanctions.
