U.S. Practice Director Interviews Frank Real, Forensic Auditor with Homeland Security Investigations at AILA Philadelphia April Dinner

Jonathan A. Grode

AILA PHL April Dinner 1 

On Thursday April 25th, U.S. Practice Director Jonathan Grode curated a conversation for the Philadelphia Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers’ Association as part of their April Chapter Dinner. The insightful, hour-long discussion conversation was between Jonathan and Mr. Frank Real, a Forensic Auditor at Homeland Security Investigations with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”).

Over the course of their conversation, the two covered many topics related to the agency and its increasingly popularized role in U.S. Immigration. Of particular note, the topics of agency enforcement priorities, increased visibility under the Trump administration, and best practices for Form I-9 investigations were highlighted, among other key insights.

The main takeaway was the increased governmental emphasis on enforcement, with more resources being earmarked for Form I-9 investigations, designed to encourage strict compliance. We have been covering this trend for some time, in the variety of forms that it has taken. Employers and individuals alike would be well served to ensure that they have a robust policy in place to deal with such an investigation, should they be faced with it.
