ICE to audit hiring records
ATLANTA | Federal immigration authorities are beginning a new round of investigations designed to make sure businesses hire only people authorized to work in the U.S., focusing this time on companies vital to national security and other government and economic functions.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Wednesday it is notifying 1,000 companies that it will inspect their I-9s, the forms new employees complete, along with documents the workers provide to show they are eligible to work in the U.S.
The Obama administration has made cracking down on employers a key part of its immigration-enforcement policy, emphasizing employer audits more than the high-profile workplace raids done during the administration of President George W. Bush.

A CIA spokeswoman said, “We are looking into [outage] reports.”
