One of the 27 that were arrested
for having counterfeit immigration documents at Greensboro airport on March 8, is facing charges for providing false documents. Jorge Ruiz-Alonso, a Venezuelan, who came to the U.S. in 1993 for a one year stay and never left, was working as a TIMCO labor contract official.
He is being charged with providing fake documents to illegal aliens so they could obtain employment at the aviation-maintenance company. Note that the story below is reporting 24 arrests, but it was initially reported that the number was 27.
The charges against Jorge Ruiz-Alonso of Greensboro are the first hint that authorities might go beyond the arrests of 24 people believed to be illegal immigrants who were detained at TIMCO two weeks ago.
Ruiz-Alonso was among the 24 detainees taken into custody in the US Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement sting at TIMCO on March 8.
