NYTimes: Only 11 Employers Prosecuted for Illegal Hiring in Past Year


Mon, Jun 3rd 2019 @ 11:55 am EDT

While the Trump administration concentrates on efforts to crack down on illegal immigration at the southern border, there has been little effort to pursue employers who hire unauthorized workers. Between March 2018 to March 2019, just eleven employers faced prosecution for the illegal hiring of unauthorized workers, according to a study by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University and reported in The New York Times.

In a statement, TRAC, researchers summarized their findings, "Not only are few employers prosecuted, fewer who are convicted receive sentences that amount to more than token punishment." Only three of the eleven employers who faced charges for illegal hiring served prison time.
