It happened once and now it has happened again. Hi-Tech Trucking Inc. has been found guilty of hiring and housing illegal aliens.
Six years ago, the company underwent an investigation linked to “money laundering, narcotics trafficking, and alien harboring in Baltimore,” the owners, Bao Ping Wang and Trang Lu, pleading guilty the following year, according to the Washington Examiner.
That did not stop Wang and Lu who continued to hire illegal aliens the next year.
According to the article, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) conducted an uncover investigation which showed that both “Hi-Tech Trucking Inc. and SeaLands Food employed between six and 24 illegal aliens at various times from 2006 through 2009,” with a few of them possessing a criminal record.
The ICE discovered that Wang and Lu were housing and feeding Asian workers in their Richmond warehouse, where they had “at least three bunk rooms” for them to sleep (http://washingtonexaminer.com/local/virginia/2010/11/business-owners-sentenced-again-harboring-illegal-aliens).
Lu, who did not report Wang’s felony, received two years probation while Wang has to serve 18 months in jail, and once completed, be deported, the company already agreeing to pay 1.2 million dollars, the Washington Examiner notes.
