WASHINGTON - U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) notified seven companies that they will be considered for debarment from federal contracting because each has been found to be unlawfully employing persons without employment authorization.

"By using debarment in appropriate circumstances, the federal government can avoid working with businesses that employ an illegal workforce and unscrupulously undercut their competitors to gain an unfair market advantage because of reduced labor costs. This is yet another tool that we believe will further ensure compliance with our nation's immigration employment laws," said Julie L. Myers, Homeland Security Assistant Secretary for ICE.

The Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) provide that contractors may be considered for debarment if they have been found to have either knowingly hire an unauthorized worker or to continue to employ an alien who is or becomes unauthorized.

The following seven companies are being considered for debarment:

* Bynum Brothers Home Improvement Co. - Buffalo, N.Y.
* CMC Concrete Construction, Inc. - Manassas, Va.
* Hedges Landscape Specialists Inc. d/b/a Exterior Designs, Inc. and d/b/a Performance Irrigation, LLC - Crestwood, Ky.
* Lochirco Fruit & Produce Inc. d/b/a Happy Apples - Union, Mo.
* MC Cleaning - Bangor, Maine
* Morgan Jones LLC d/b/a Jones Industrial Network and d/b/a Jones Networking - Baltimore, Md.
* Stonewall Concrete, Inc. - Manassas, Va.
