Two workers at an embattled kosher slaughterhouse facing Immigration charges are accused of helping workers obtain and submit false documents.

Laura Althouse, 38, of Postville, and Karina Freund, 29, of Fayette, were arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents on Tuesday at the Agriprocessors Inc. plant in Postville. Both work in the company's human resources department.

They are the most recent employees at the northeastern Iowa plant to face Immigration charges. They were arrested on the same day that the state attorney general charged the company's owner and four top managers with more than 9,000 misdemeanors each, alleging child labor law violations.

In the federal case, Althouse was charged with aiding and abetting document fraud, aiding and abetting aggravated identity theft and conspiracy to harbor undocumented immigrants. Freund was charged with aiding and abetting undocumented immigrants.

The women appeared in federal court in Cedar Rapids hours after their arrest. A judge ordered Freund to be temporarily detained as the court set up electronic monitoring for her release. They were both ordered to surrender passports if they have them and not to obtain new passports.

Federal Immigration agents raided the Agriprocessors plant on May 12, arresting 389 people in what officials said was one of the largest single-site Immigration busts in U.S. history.

During the raid, agents reportedly found more than 90 fraudulent resident alien cards in the plant's human resources office.

The more this story unfolds the more I am convinced that everyone who worked in the operations of that plant were duplicitous in the fully aware that they were hiring illegal alien adults and children.

Default Thank-you!

And they ONLY sneak over here for landscaping and fieldwork jobs... Right!
I know some one.. an AMERICAN who worked at a plant like this for over 20
years... sent his kids thru college and and paid off his home working there.
So think of how many true AMERICANS are losing jobs to illegals!!!

The more business's that get caught, the more of them will start to CLEAN HOUSE!!

OOps

Hope it doesn't ruin their retirement. The more kids you have working the more money they create for your retirement. A poor man's 401k.

My bad
