McDonald’s Franchisee Fined $1M for Hiring Illegal Aliens – Fox News

Don’t have all the info on this yet, but it looks like an employer has finally been held accountable for their actions. It just goes to show how employers are doing a lot of the law breaking while migrants are simply looking to support their families.

RENO, Nev. — Two executives and the corporate owner of 11 northern Nevada McDonald’s restaurants pleaded guilty to felony immigration charges and agreed to pay $1 million in fines.

Authorities say Mack Associates Inc. employed illegal immigrants at the fast-food restaurants by giving them names and Social Security numbers belonging to others.

Thanks to the rocket for the heads-up. 😉

  1. Ya got a much bigger one you missed…

    Librarian, been here since she was 3, married with a 2 year old kid, faces deportation for using a fake social security number.

    What do we do about the breaking of the law re: using a fake social security number??? It’s a crime, and it’s an ACTIVE crime, cuz it’s hard to believe a librarian wasn’t aware of the law.

    Admittedly, it’s tragic that her child will grow up without Mom, but thousands of kids grow up without mothers who choose to knowingly break the law.

    Do the crime, gotta do the time (or pay the fine) right?
