Sometimes the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency will conduct what’s sometimes called a paper raid. It’s called an I-9 inspection, and that involves usually two people from Immigration and Customs Enforcement who come to the employer’s site with a notice of inspection, it’s called. And they give that to the employer, and the employer has three days to collect all of their Forms I-9 and give them to the immigration service.
