Restaurant Owner and Manager Arrested, Sentenced and Fined For Hiring Illegal Workers

How long will it be until the Federal Government starts to crack down on New York City restaurant owners for employing illegal aliens?  It may happen soon. 

This past week, the owner of French Gourmet, a restaurant in San Diego, was sentenced in Federal Court and ordered to serve 5 years of probation and pay $396,575 in fines.  The manager was ordered to serve 3 years of probation and pay $2,500 in fines for his role in hiring illegal immigrants. 

“When employers do not comply, we will take vigorous enforcement action to ensure they do not profit from this illegal tactic," said U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy.   This case reflects a new approach by federal authorities as they crack down on the hiring of illegal immigrants. After years of conducting sweeps of undocumented laborers, the federal government is now focusing more on the employers who knowingly hire them.
