In our last blog, we mentioned the "Secure Communities" program, a program from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) that allows immigration officials to review the immigration status of individuals arrested for crimes.
Last week, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) introduced a new public advocate position. ICE created the position to ensure that immigration advocacy groups and immigrants have a voice in deportation, detention and immigration policy discussions.
A new report is once against proving something we have always known: immigrants contribute to Maryland's economy. Immigration is not the economic problem that many believe it to be.
Over the last few years, the Department of Homeland Security's Immigration and Customs Enforcement division (ICE) has increased the number of employment audits done for immigration purposes. One result from the increased enforcement is that employers are being much more cautious in their hiring decisions, often requiring so much from applicants that they end up breaking employment hiring laws.
