On August 8th, Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) announced that following an investigation and audit of Form I-9 documents, it had issued a $625,000 fine to Secaucus, New Jersey clothing manufacturer, Infinite Visions LLC, for alleged violations of the Immigration and Nationality Act  and serious deficiencies with their form I-9 employment eligibility verification records. 

HSI stated that its investigation into Infinite Visions’ hiring practices followed an anonymous tip claiming that the company was employing unauthorized workers.  The enforcement action serves as another reminder of the importance of properly completing Forms I-9 for legally authorized workers.
