Employers Arrested and Subjected to Criminal Charges for Hiring Illegal Aliens

September 23, 2010 - Los Angeles area employers have been criminally charged with hiring illegal aliens. The owner and top executive of a metal casting company were arrested by ICE officers. The agents also executed a federal search warrant at the business as part of its ongoing investigation of the firm’s hiring practices.

Both are charged with continuing to employ unauthorized aliens after ICE had notified them that some of their employees were working with counterfeit green cards. The employers allegedly indicated that the subject employees had been terminated. However, it was subsequently revealed that two of the unauthorized had remained on the payroll after the employer had directed them to go out and get "good" social security numbers.
