“[Employers are] carrying extreme liability [in their I-9 Forms because Immigration and Compliance Agents] are looking for people to prosecute… Civil enforcement is out and criminal enforcement is in — including the possibility that business owners can have their personal property seized and that middle managers can be charged with felonies of conspiracy and harboring.” Mary Pivec, partner at Keller and Heckman LLP (Source: “Federal Enforcers Wield Big Sticks” H R Magazine, July 2010)
