After an investigation conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Alabaster Police Department, a Birmingham, Alabama construction company owner was indicted on charges of harboring and employing illegal aliens.
As a result of the investigation, the owner was charged in a three-count indictment. If convicted of all counts, the owner faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 10 years and a fine of $250,000. All of the illegal aliens working for the construction company were arrested and placed in deportation proceedings.
ICE aggressively targets employers who violate immigration laws by knowingly employing an illegal workforce.
