Three illegal immigrant workers arrested in a raid at Smithfield Foods’ Tar Heel packing plant have been sentenced to 18 months of imprisonment, followed by deportation. All three pleaded guilty to fraud and misuse of documents.

The men were part of a group of 21 workers apprehended in a January 2007 raid on the facility. Eighteen of those detained were determined to be undocumented workers who had provided assumed names and Social Security numbers to get work.
