LOUISVILLE, Ky. - The owner of a LaGrange restaurant was sentenced Tuesday to eight months in federal prison following his guilty plea to knowingly employing illegal aliens. This sentence resulted from an investigation conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Simpson III, Western District of Kentucky, to eight months in prison for employing illegal aliens at his restaurant. Tang was also sentenced to serve three years of supervised release following his release from prison.

While Kentucky does not have laws as hard as OK or AZ it is clear that most of Kentucky will not put up with illegal alien employers stuffing their pockets via illegal alien labor. This is one reason why KY has a very small, although growing, population of illegals. I went there back in September and it was the first time in 4 years i went to a Burger King and heard perfect English being spoken in the kitchen.

I'm glad he is serving time in jail, but I wish the sentence had been more severe. They need to impose lengthy sentences (at least 10 years) to actually deter the employment of illegal aliens. They should also seize all assets.

You are right, what we need are wide spread work place RANDOM raids with deportations and HUGE fines for the dirt bag employers. Nix the whole thing.

Really? After going into Burger Kings and McDonalds at several locations and the experience was less than American, I stopped eating at all fast food places a few years ago. As for Kentucky, I can't imagine illegals being welcomed there with anything other than a double barrel.
