Audit: Half Of AZ Businesses Have Illegal Employees

Posted:

Arizona April 24 - An audit done by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents shows more than half of Arizona businesses have illegal immigrants on their payroll.

An Immigration Department spokesperson says 43 out of the 84 companies screened in audits have been sent violation notices about suspected illegal employees.

The agency's policy is not to name the companies with illegal employees unless they are disciplined with a fine or other measure.  ICE agents did the audits last year.
