Audits over illegal immigrants rising

SEATTLE

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement reached its highest number yet of companies audited for illegal immigrants on their payrolls this past fiscal year.

Audits of company I-9 forms increased from 250 in fiscal year 2007 to more than 3,000 in 2012. From fiscal years 2009 to 2012, the total amount of fines grew to nearly $13 million from $1 million. The number of company managers arrested has increased to 238.

The probing of employers is one of the pillars of President Barack Obama’s immigration policy. He has also said that any plan Congress considers this year to reform the nation’s immigration system should continue the audits.

‘Terminal bliss’

CHICAGO

Getting stranded at an airport once meant enduring hours of boredom with nothing to eat but fast food. These days, it can seem more like passing through the gates of Shangri-la to find spas, yoga studios, luxury shopping and restaurant menus crafted by celebrity chefs.

Stung by airline bankruptcies and mergers, more U.S. airports are hunting for alternative revenue streams by hiring top design firms to transform terminals into places of luxury where people actually want to get stuck — and spend money.

Traveler Marty Rapp, passing through Chicago-O’Hare last week, delivered her verdict, calling its new Ice Bar venue “very classy.”
