Independent Report: ICE Enforcement Violates Workers’ Rights

Iced Out: How Immigration Enforcement Has Interfered with Workers’ Rights

The AFL-CIO, American Rights at Work, and the National Employment Law Project have jointly published this document which continues the criticism of ICE workplace immigration raids in the United States.

“This report shows that in too many instances, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) worksite raids have prevented meaningful enforcement of labor standards for all workers. ICE actions have created incentives for shady employers to continue hiring and abusing undocumented workers, since the deportation of their employees may excuse those employers from complying with labor laws.”

“In the pages that follow, this report reviews existing agency policy directives and current practices, highlights instances in which immigration enforcement has eviscerated labor law enforcement, and recommends policy changes that will restore the appropriate balance between immigration enforcement and labor rights.”
