ICE Raids Texas Technology Company Arrests 280 Employees


Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested 280 employees at CVE Technology Group in a massive raid in Texas, on charges of working in the US illegally.

The fines for the first offense of hiring illegals can be $250-$2,000 per illegal employee. Three days after an employee is hired, employers should correctly complete an I-9. Failing to do so will subject employers to criminal and civil punishment.

ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations division received tips that the company — CVE Technology Group — may have knowingly hired undocumented immigrants and that several workers were using fraudulent identification documents, said Katrina Berger, special agent in charge in HSI’s Dallas office.

Hiring irregularities found during an audit of the company’s I-9 forms confirmed those tips. CVE hasn’t responded to media requests for comment.

Federal hiring laws require that employers have new hires fill out I-9 forms. The laws perform “necessary and common sense functions,” Berger said at a news conference Wednesday afternoon.

“They ensure U.S. citizens and legal U.S. residents are hired for jobs in the U.S.,” Berger said. “They also ensure that illegal workers are not preyed upon or paid less than the going wage or otherwise coerced or cheated or subjected to unsafe working conditions without any means of complaint.” More

This raid should get the attention of other companies that knowingly hire illegals. Plus whoever was in charge of hiring ought to be jailed. Set an example otherwise it’s just going to continue like always.
