Top ICE official chides reporter for using the word ‘raids’
By Ted Hesson

DHS published a notice in the Federal Register Tuesday that applies “expedited removal” to migrants who entered the country illegally and cannot prove continuous presence in the U.S. of at least two years, up from a previous 14-day cutoff. The new policy will be applied nationwide, as opposed to an earlier version that only affected people caught within 100 miles of a U.S. border. Albence said the agency was “in the process of developing implementation guidance.” The acting director also touched on efforts to stop businesses from employing undocumented workers. ICE issued 3,282 worksite inspection notices to employers from July 15 to July 19, according to the agency. Albence said the notices were part of an effort “to instill a culture of compliance” within U.S. businesses. The Trump administration seldom prosecutes employers suspected of hiring undocumented workers, according to a May report from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. DOJ only prosecuted 11 people for such criminal offenses during a one-year period from April 2018 through March 2019, according to TRAC.
