ICE Issues $625,000 Fine to New Jersey Company for Form I-9 Violations

Infinite Visions, LLC, a New Jersey-based clothing manufacturer, was recently fined $625,000 for Form I-9 violations discovered during an audit and inspection conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) after receiving an anonymous tip about allegations that the company engaged in unlawful hiring practices.

The government’s audit revealed numerous violations of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) and serious deficiencies in the company’s employment records. After receiving a Notice of Intent to Fine, the company reached a final settlement with HSI for $625,000.

Since 2009, HSI has pursued a targeted strategy of investigating employers who are suspected of violating federal immigration law by employing undocumented workers and failing to comply with employment eligibility verification requirements. According to official statistics, HSI has levied a record number of civil and criminal penalties in the last year.
