Since November 1996, the USCIS has been imposing sanctions on employers found employing undocumented workers in the US. These regulations have increased the responsibility of employers to maintain essential documentation, such as the I-9 form for every worker, ensuring the legal residency status is verified. Essentially, the USCIS has shifted its focus to the supply side of the undocumented worker issue, placing significant responsibility on employers. This has introduced potential civil sanctions and even criminal penalties for non-compliance. These sanctions are now viewed as the new “cyber-wall” against immigration, often leading to financial challenges for genuine business owners.
