    Illegal workers booted, but what of their bosses? - By Linda Chiem, MSNBC
    I.C.E moves quickly to deport illegal workers and says it has brought down the average time to process deportations to 19 days.

    But building cases against the companies that hired the workers can take years. Investigators say they have to prove that employers knew the workers they hired were in the country illegally and that they intentionally lied on the federal I-9 employment verification form.

    In cases involving construction work, the developer points to the general contractor who then blames subcontractors, who in turn blame other subs or day-labor agencies that provide some of the workers. Whoever made the hire typically says they were duped by an illegal worker using forged or stolen identification papers.
