To comply with ICE’s “best practices” for the Basic Pilot Program, businesses must agree to take these steps:

  • Allow ICE to audit the company’s I-9s.

  • Establish a company training program on managing I-9s and audit it internally, or hire outside auditors to do it.

  • Establish a protocol for responding to mismatch letters received from the Social Security Administration.

  • Set up a tip line for employees to report unauthorized workers, and a protocol for responding to tips.

  • Submit an annual report to ICE.
