ICE Agents Raid Dozens of Businesses in California

ICE Agents Raid Dozens of Businesses in California

A statement released by ICE said the raids happened between January 29 and January 31.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that a total of 77 businesses in the Bay Area and Sacramento were raided this week.

This time, ICE agents searched 77 businesses in the San Francisco and Sacramento areas in what was believed to be the largest localized raid since President Donald Trump took office, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

He said workers found to be in the country illegally during the investigations will be subject to arrest and removal from the country.

According to NBC, business owners were given the notices Monday through Wednesday. Any potential criminal charges or other penalties will be coordinated with the U.S. Department of Justice. In response to the prospect of ICE raids, religious leaders gathered at the Congregational Church of San Mateo Thursday to show solidarity with the immigrant community.

Scientists have developed an interactive online tool to help breast cancer patients better understand their treatment options. This week, the AHA published a scientific statement detailing the cardiovascular risks that can come with cancer treatment .

In raids such as the ones this week, ICE agents demand that employers provide I-9 forms for their employees, which show that workers produced valid identification such as a Social Security card to prove they are in the USA legally. If the employees don't have this paperwork, businesses prove to ICE that they have been fired.

The notices alerted business owners that agents would be auditing their hiring records to make sure they are complying with the law.

HSI uses a three-prong approach to conduct worksite enforcement: compliance, through I-9 inspections, civil fines and referrals for debarment; enforcement, through the criminal arrest of employers and administrative arrest of unauthorized workers; and outreach, through the ICE Mutual Agreement between Government and Employers, or IMAGE program, to instill a culture of compliance and accountability.

The Immigrant Worker Protection Act requires that employers post notices about the federal demand for records within 72 hours of being served.
