Biden administration orders halt to ICE raids at worksites

Source: Washington Post

The Biden administration Tuesday ordered a halt to large-scale immigration arrests at job sites, and said it is planning a new enforcement strategy to more effectively target employers who pay substandard wages and engage in exploitative labor practices.

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’s memo ordered a review of enforcement policies and gave immigration officials 60 days to devise proposals to better protect workers who report on their bosses from facing deportation.

Mass arrest operations by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, commonly referred to as ICE raids, have been used primarily against industries that employ large numbers of immigrants, such as meatpacking. Immigrant advocates and many Democrats who oppose the raids say they punish vulnerable workers, sow fear in immigrant communities and rarely result in consequences for employers.

“The deployment of mass worksite operations, sometimes resulting in the simultaneous arrest of hundreds of workers, was not focused on the most pernicious aspect of our country’s unauthorized employment challenge: exploitative employers,” Mayorkas’s memo states.

5. I would actually like ICE raids to continue at worksites.................to arrest employers.

Employers I imagine that have more than likely been abusing and or exploiting people that did not enter the country legally or that stayed after their legal visas expired.

6. Agreed

The employees are not the problem, it is the ones that hire them.

7. Long overdue

Blaming the workers and not the employers for exploiting the workers.

And then people complain about a lack of food on their tables while the GOP boots out all the people who were willing to harvest and process it, while golden parachute-like subsidies go to the big corps when they have no one to work for them

9. Exploitative employers

About time!

But expect compliance to cause pricing to shoot through the roof. The Calif. farm economy depends on migrants.
