The Biden Administration Is Moving To End Mass Worksite Raids That Resulted In Hundreds Of Immigrants Being Arrested
By Hamed Aleaziz


An analysis by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University found that during April 2018 and March 2019, only 11 employers individuals, not companies were prosecuted for hiring immigrants without proper documentation. Since criminal penalties for employers were first enacted by Congress in 1986, few employers have ever been prosecuted, according to the TRAC analysis. Fewer than 20 prosecutions have taken place against employers in a single year, except for brief periods under then-president George W. Bush and in the first year of the Obama administration, the data show.
