Well here's no surprise. 120 suspected illegal aliens -- half of the construction company's staff -- were busted at the construction site of a new Wal-Mart distribution center.
On Thursday morning, agents from the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration, along with State Police and members of the Schuylkill County Sheriff's office, arrived at the construction site in the High Ridge Business Park. They were looking for suspected illegal immigrants.
120 people were taken into custody. That amounts to about half the work force at the construction site. They were put on busses and taken to a processing area. The government will determine what will be done with the workers from there.
Wal-Mart says it's not responsible for the illegals because those arrested were contractors and not Wal-Mart employees. The name of the construction company that hired the workers has not been released. Investigators say the company will probably be questioned by the agents as to how the undocumented workers got their jobs.
Of course Wal-Mart's not at fault, it's not like they've been involved in knowingly hiring illegal aliens before. The kicker to all of this is that investigators refuse to name the company and then have the audacity to say they'll "probably", might, maybe, when they get some time question the company on why half their staff is illegal aliens.
If they don't investigate those "investigators" all deserve to be fired for incompetence.
