Napolitano: “ICE Raids Will Target Employers”

La Opinión, Posted: Apr 15, 2009

LOS ANGELES—During her recent visit to Los Angeles, Department of Homeland Security head Janet Napolitano said ICE raids will continue in the workplace, but will focus on employers, reports La Opinión. Napolitano said that there will be no halt to arrests of undocumented workers and employers who violate labor laws when hiring, and added that ICE guidelines and protocols are still being reviewed. She emphasized that the review will change ICE operations policies, focusing on developing well-supported cases to arrest those who violate labor laws -- employers “who consistently and intentionally use and exploit the labor market for their own gain.”

Raul Murillo, director of Los Angeles-based immigrant rights organization Hermandad Mexicana Nacional, said that what is needed most is “immediate legalization for the 12 million undocumented people and an end to putting families in persecution and suffering.”
