The company, American Defense Systems Inc., allowed federal immigration authorities to audit its hiring procedures and inspect the documentation for its current workers.

The company is the first to enroll in the Immigration and Customs Enforcement program, titled ICE Mutual Agreement between Government and Employers, or Image.
