Minnesota Public Radio reports that one of the largest immigration crackdowns under the Obama administration quietly took place in the Twin Cities as a result of an I-9 audit at a janitorial services company. According to sources quoted in the article, 1,200 janitors were fired from their jobs last month after failing to produce acceptable I-9 documents. Unlike the high-profile raids of the past, apparently none of the unauthorized workers were arrested or otherwise detained by ICE. No details are provided on any fines levied against the company.
