An Employer's Introduction to Immigration Law and Worksite EnforcementDecember 11, 2008
In the last several years, the government has increasingly sought to control illegal immigration into the United States by targeting the employers of undocumented workers.

GoffWilson’s article, “An Employer’s Introduction to Immigration Law and Worksite Enforcement” traces the evolution of employment immigration laws and their enforcement from the passage of the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) in 1986, which gave us the ubiquitous Form I-9, to the massive worksite enforcement actions that have been in the recent news.
