Cedar Rapids, Ia. - A floor manager from Agriprocessors Inc. could serve seven years or more in federal prison for helping his employer hire illegal immigrants at the kosher meat-processing plant in Postville.

Juan Carlos Guerrero-Espinoza, 35, pleaded guilty Wednesday to two charges stemming from his role in the illegal-worker operation that was exposed during an immigration raid in May.


"Yes, your honor," Guerrero-Espinoza said when asked if he had knowingly hired illegal immigrants.

The plea came three months after federal agents raided the meatpacking plant and detained 389 workers. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents later described their operation as the largest single-site raid in U.S. history.

Excellent . . only a few thousand more employers to go and we may just get our country back.

Another interesting post, JDubsMom

I have a major problem with this statement, how about you?

The pleas could hurt Guerrero-Espinoza's ability to stay in the country after his prison term, said U.S. Magistrate Judge Jon Scoles. The defense attorney, Mark Rotert, said his client is a legal immigrant, and he stressed that Wednesday's hearing had no direct bearing on Guerrero-Espinoza's residency.
Considering the crime and felon status, why should he NOT be deported and barred from any future legal status?

Good catch/question. The only reasoning I can come up with is that it is either because he is a long time legal immigrant or he ratted out somebody higher up in the food chain and his attorney cut some type of deal in return for the information.
