Mass. factory owner sentenced in immigration case - Boston.com (http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2009/01/27/mass_factory_owner_sentenced_in_immigration_case/ - broken link)

Quote:
The president of a New Bedford leather-goods factory that was raided in 2007 by immigration agents was sentenced Tuesday to 12 months in federal prison for harboring and concealing illegal immigrants.

Michael Bianco Inc. was also ordered to pay $1 million for 18 specific counts of knowingly hiring illegal immigrants between 2004 and late 2006.

Itís always good to see one of these scum employers fined and imprisoned. However, I wish the penalties were more stringent. I think they should fine them at least $500k for each illegal employee, and sentence them to a minimum of 10 years in prison. They need Ďrealí deterrents for this practice to end.
