31. According to the local newspaper
Skilled tradespeople complained to Schuylkill Co. officials. They are on UC while these illegals were doing the work they normally do. The Schuylkill Co. sheriff investigated and called in the Feds according to a television interview I saw yesterday on WNEP.

Here's a follow-up from today.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement department announced the workers had been hired by five contractors, Destin Drywall & Paint, Inc., Frazier Drywall, Jay-Ton Concrete, CS Construction Services and Republic Refrigeration.

The contractors who hired the workers could face criminal charges for hiring undocumented workers. "Employers who knowingly hire illegal aliens, and those who utilize false documents to gain employment face significant criminal and administrative charges," said John Kelleghan, Acting Special Agent-in-Charge of ICE in Pennsylvania.

Agents found some of the workers used invalid, altered or falsified documents to get the jobs. Those arrested are from Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico. Prosecutors said all will have hearings before being deported.
