White House Ends ICE Workplace Raids for Undocumented Workers
USAgNet - 10/18/2021

The Biden administration has put a stop to “mass workplace raids” for undocumented immigrants and instead will target companies that continually flout laws that prohibit the hiring of such workers.

In a memo issued Tuesday by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the agency was ordered to stop such raids and to develop – along with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and U.S. Customs and Border Protection – plans to address employers’ abusive treatment of immigrant employees.

Under the Trump administration, ICE conducted several high-profile workplace raids, with mass arrests of undocumented workers, including at more than a dozen meatpacking plants.
