In addition to providing expertise in relation to specific concerns or issues that arise, DH provides assistance with performing self-audits to identify systemic problems and resolve them before a government audit results in potential civil fines. DH offers expert assistance in the definition, establishment and maintenance of an effective and comprehensive immigration compliance program. Maintaining a current, effective and comprehensive immigration compliance program is essential given the aggressive law enforcement policies currently being pursued by government regulators.
