"Businesses that use illegal alien workers to gain an economic advantage over their competition must understand they will potentially pay a price for those unlawful practices

Owners of northern California Chinese restaurants plead guilty to employing illegal aliens (http://www.ice.gov/pi/nr/0810/081023sacramento.htm?searchstring=harboring - broken link)

In order to accurately account for wage and employment taxes, California law requires employers to submit quarterly wage reports to California Employment Development Department. From April 20, 2007, to July 20, 2008, Empire Buffet's owner signed nine EDD wage reports that did not account for all of the employees working at Empire Buffet. By failing to list these undocumented aliens, the Empire Buffet was able to increase revenue at the business by hiding wage and tax information from the State of California. According to the plea, Rui Yang Lin and Bi Xia Ni were aware of the requirement to accurately complete the EDD forms, yet they submitted wage reports they knew were false.
