It is illegal for an individual to be stopped on the basis of their race or ethnicity. Immigration Enforcement officers do not carry out random visits and nor do they stop individuals at random.

Enforcement operations by Immigration Enforcement officers are intelligence-led and are carried out only where there is a reasonable prospect of encountering immigration offenders.
