The purpose of ICE is to enforce federal laws governing border control, customs, trade and immigration. As part of that mission, the agency conducts crackdowns on businesses who hire illegal workers. In the past two years, the agency has made a shift in its actions, directing more resources on identifying and fining employers rather than large scale raids on employees.</p> Fri, 18 Nov 2011 16:06:39 +0000 Rick Ganley 515 at http://nhpr.org Illegal Workers; an ICE Agent's View
