Immigration raids at U.S. workplaces have jumped by more than 50 percent in the past six months, according to new Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) stats.

ICE is also stepping up prosecution of employers and has filed criminal charges against 527 people whom it claims knowingly hired illegal aliens. In comparison, the agency filed charges against only 25 employers in 2002.

Critics claim the increased enforcement is a political effort to show the administration is tough on illegal immigration as it tries to pass an immigration reform bill.
