Undercover operation helped crack alleged illegal worker network | STATE NEWS | Breaking Houston News, Weather, Sports, Traffic, Video from KHOU.com | 11 News (http://www.khou.com/news/state/stories/khou080106_tnt_immigrantworkers.16d5f741.html - broken link)


DALLAS -- For years, federal agents had received tips alleging undocumented immigrants were working at plants owned by the Pilgrim’s Pride Corp., the nation’s largest chicken producer.

Sounds like the HR department was the fall guy. The company passed off the blame to an innocent further lowering themselves. Like there aren't legal lower tier citizens to benefit from these jobs? If they are using false docs do they still tax the illegals? Either way, shame on them and any other company that allows illegal activity.
