Most of these migrants have come not from Mexico, however, but from the so-called “Northern Triangle”--El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala.

ICE is a federal government law enforcement agency whose responsibilities include preventing people from entering the United States illegally, apprehending people who are illegally present in the US, detaining certain immigrants, and similar police operations. Because ICE’s resources and activities have been hampered by the coronavirus crisis, the agency has issued a statement detailing its enforcement priorities during the crisis.
Once an employer received a Notice of Intent to Fine from ICE, the employer has the option to either pay the fine or contest the fine. The Notice of Intent to Fine is the charging document. A charging document lists all the violations allegedly committed by the employer and the corresponding penalties recommended by ICE.
