AMI submitted comments today to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in response to the Department of Homeland Security’s release of their Supplemental Proposed Rule that attempts to clarify the Final Rule issued on August 15, 2007 regarding Safe-Harbor Procedures for Employers Who Receive a No-Match Letter.

“AMI’s members strongly urge DHS to bring credibility to the nation’s immigration laws by fulfilling its stated purpose in this rule of providing employers predictability as to their compliance obligations and protection from unlawful discrimination claims if they meet their no-match obligations,” the comments state.

 “ Finally, AMI asks that DHS seriously consider simplifying the administrative challenges the rule will require by authorizing through regulation or legislation usage of the E-Verify program by enrolled employers for no-match compliance purposes,” the comments conclude.
