ICE and U.S. Attorneys are actively enforcing immigration compliance requirements against employers in Kansas. Since the 2009 ICE Worksite Enforcement memo was issued, ICE and U.S. Attorneys have been imprisoning and fining Kansas employers for immigration-related violations. In February 2016, a manager of a rural Kansas restaurant, who was under ICE investigation since 2011, was finally sentenced to jail and fined for employing unauthorized workers.

The whole issue of the executive action in this case boils down to work permits for foreign workers: whether the workers already in the US will be allowed to be registered, screened, and apply for temporary work permits. About 4.5 million workers who are working in the US without documents and their US employers would be affected.
